Brett Hoven (German and History Double Major, graduated 2007
Graduating with a degree in German helped compliment my History major. I was able to take classes on German history (in German), providing a broader understanding of the culture and a wider scope of German history. Being able to study a country's history in its native language helps bring it alive. I would definitely recommend taking German to anyone who's interested in German culture or history, or even if they're just looking for a challenge.
