German Language and Literature

At Queen’s, basic German language acquisition courses are popular electives for students with little or no knowledge of the language.


An honours concentration will deepen your fluency in the German language as well as broaden your understanding of the literature, culture, and history of Germany. If you are interested in an international business career, you may wish to consider a minor concentration in Business German.

A concentration in German can be enriched by an international academic exchange to a German-speaking country.
