We approach language as a combination of linguistic competencies, intercultural proficiency, and transcultural research with global impact. We are dedicated to international education within and beyond the borders of Oregon, and we are visionaries in the integration of German and STEM. Click here for more information.
The German program at Oregon State University strives to increase diversity of its student body and course offerings. We endeavor to create a standardized program within the framework of OSU’s strategic plan. We aim to provide a curriculum informed by the mission of our land-, sea-, space-, and sun-grant university.

All of our German courses and their respective learning outcomes are aligned with a CEFR proficiency level ranging from A1 to B2. German majors will achieve CEFR proficiency in speaking, listening, reading and writing at the level B2, minors at the level B1. The learning outcomes are measured either by Goethe Institute language exams, telc language exams, ACTFL test or similar exams, such as an exit exam approved and administered by German faculty at OSU. Our capstone course is GER 413, the final course in our Fourth-Year sequence. Click here for more information.
