Resources for Students

The German Department has so much to offer! Take a look at our study abroad program options, the German language house, our Sprungbrett ins Internet (springboard into the Internet) and our news and events. Students can join our chapter of Phi Sigma Iota, the International Foreign Language Honor Society. We've also got a lot of photos of the cool things we offer and do.

Every semester in the Max Kade theater, we show a German film from our large collection. Some films are subtitled in English, some are not, but all will help you improve your language skills and get to know German culture. Admission is free and fluency in German is optional.

Films in the collection include classics and modern films:

  • Der Blaue Engel (The Blue Angel)
  • Der Himmel über Berlin (Wings of Desire)
  • Sieben Zwerge - Männer allein im Wald (Seven Dwarves: an interpretation of Snow White)
  • and hundreds more!

Come watch a movie with us! Please see News & Events page for more information.

Study Abroad Opportunities

Students in any of the German major or minor options are encouraged to participate in a well-established Study Abroad Program through the Colorado College or another institution.
  • Colorado College Exchange Program: Two to four full scholarships are awarded each year to qualified CC students for study at either the University of Regensburg or the University of Göttingen during the junior or senior year.
  • Other programs: Visit CC's International Programs Office on the second floor of Armstrong Hall for information on other programs in German-speaking countries.
  • In order to receive transfer credit from non-CC programs, students must keep detailed documentation (course syllabi, notes, reading lists, certificates of course attendance, etc.) of all work completed abroad. Upon submission of that documentation to the corresponding department at CC (in consultation with the International Studies Office and the Registrar), CC credit will then be awarded or denied.
