German for Internships and Research (GRMST-115)

Bundestag in Berlin

Bundestag in Berlin

Instructor: Donna Van Handle

Fall semester, 2017. This 2-credit course is for students who wish to acquire a working knowledge of German to prepare for an internship or research in a German-speaking country. Some knowledge of German affords students access to better placements in internships, especially DAAD RISE summer internships sponsored and supported by the German government.

In this class, we focus on vocabulary and structures used when interacting with German speakers in specific cultural contexts or discipline-specific situations.  Several classes are devoted to presentations by staff from the CDC, McCulloch Center, and the Alumnae Association.  Students will also receive help with applications and resumes.
