German Major and Minor

Program Overview

School: Seaver College
Location: Malibu

Some of the noblest contributions to philosophy, theology, music, literature, science, and art, come from the German-speaking people. The Seaver College German degree program prepares trains to develop competency in speaking, understanding, reading, and writing the German language.

German Degree

Our students develop competency in German while practicing language skills, studying German culture, history, and literature, and even studying an additional language.

Future options for German majors include international business, graduate studies, missionary service, Foreign Service work, or careers in education or technology.

German Minor

A minor in German compliments students' other chosen fields. Students minoring in German acquire a valuable tool to aid them in their quest for knowledge, insight, appreciation, perspective, and objectivity.

Student Opportunities

Secondary Teaching Credential

Our teacher education program is an integrated program in which students receive their subject matter preparation and professional preparation simultaneously. It provides the coursework and fieldwork experiences necessary to qualify teacher candidates for a SB2042 preliminary multiple subject teaching credential or a single subject teaching credential.

Recommended International Study

The International Studies and Language Division strongly encourages students to study abroad through Pepperdine University's International Programs. These programs are an excellent way to gain overseas experience and make rapid progress in fulfilling the language requirement for the major.

Internship Opportunities

We encourage students to gain practical experience in some area of international studies through an internship. The Pepperdine Career Center offers local internship opportunities, and International Programs' Washington, D.C. Program also offers study and internship opportunities in the nation's capital. In addition to the federal government, a number of international organizations are based, or have major branches, in the city.
