All mandatory courses will be in English, as well as all of the courses that concern the history of North America and some of the courses that concern the history of other regions. Courses on specific regions may be held in the relevant regional language – for example, a course on Latin America may be held in Spanish. In addition, some courses will be offered in German, giving those who know German a broader range of courses to choose from. However, it is possible to complete the program entirely in English. Applicants do not need to know German. German language skills would simply expand your course options.
