German at the CLRC
Join us as we explore the language, culture, geography, and history of the German-speaking countries! Austrian, Swiss, and German contributions to the arts, architecture, and sciences have had powerful influence on American culture. Germany takes center-stage in our studies, as the largest of the 4 German-speaking countries. A nation recently divided, re-unified, and now a prominent leader in the European Union, Germany’s modern history is fascinating.
