 The first disadvantage of studying abroad is the difficulty of communicating with people.

A growing number of companies transact a significant portion of their business through international channels; more and more businesses must risk going abroad to find new markets as domestic markets mature. Even those corporations conducting business strictly in the U.S. have to compete with foreign imports for foreign labor. As a result, major corporations that take advantage of international risk opportunities have a competitive edge.


Studying abroad exposes people to different cultures.

Well, there are many reasons why some people don’t consider studying abroad.

In addition to core German language courses, students receive guidance from a faculty mentor to devise a curriculum geared towards specific career goals and intellectual interests. The department is comprised of specialists in the major areas of German Studies who integrate language teaching with German literature, linguistics, film, history, philosophy, and culture studies as well as important aspects of contemporary German society, business, and politics. Students acquire critical tools to undertake independent inquiries into the field of German, form their own questions about cultural specificity and difference, and are highly encouraged to study abroad.
