Welcome to the Department of Germanic and Slavic Languages and Literatures! As a department of foreign languages, literatures, and cultural studies, we prepare our students for life and careers in an increasingly global world. Our programs in German, Russian, and Nordic Studies enable students to combine their language training with interdisciplinary study of the regions where their language is spoken. The cultural legacies of the Germanic and Slavic countries continue to shape fields such as literature, art, music, film, philosophy, and political science.
