As former and current students will attest, the German Studies program at CSU, Chico is dynamic, innovative, and exciting!  The German curriculum accordingly consists of a variety of courses collectively designed to provide students with a personally enriching and marketable set of skills and knowledge. In addition, many extracurricular opportunities exist for students wishing to explore German beyond the classroom.
