German Links
Welcome! This site provides a guide to the main features of the German Studies program at Georgia Southern University. A wide range of information concerning most aspects of the program is included. It is intended for everyone interested in our program, but will be particularly useful for students (both majors and minors) and advisors.

Please keep in mind that due to regularly changing requirements, curricula etc. not all information presented here may always be entirely up-to-date. Verify information in the General University Catalog and other current publications or with faculty members, if desired. The German Section reserves the right to make changes as deemed necessary. Comments and questions are welcome; please contact any German faculty member or the department chair Dr. Eric Kartchner.

German Faculty

The German Section is comprised of three full-time professors. (A fourth member, Dr. Jolyon Hughes, currently serves as Associate Dean in CAH). Beyond their duties in the classroom and within the section, all faculty are active and involved in a wide and changing variety of university, college, and department-level committees as well as many other professional scholarship and service activities. We are located in the Interdisciplinary Academic Building. Click on the names or images for short profiles and/or to reach the respective homepage.
