The German Studies Program forms one half of the Department of German and Russian at Pomona College. It offers a variety of courses in language, literature, and culture. Across the “5 C’s,” the Claremont Colleges Consortium, German provides a fully coordinated program of courses and activities with Scripps College’s German program. The Pomona German faculty is part of a network of scholars actively committed to the teaching of German studies across disciplines in the humanities and social sciences, including International Relations, History, Philosophy, Music, Literature, Linguistics, and others, combined with study abroad in various places.
Students, incoming and continuing, with any knowledge of German can take a Placement Test any time. The password is “sagehens1″. The results allow us to place you in the appropriate-level class to continue your study of German.
