GER 321

GER 321 covers different aspects of the German business world and the German economy within its European context. The goal of the course is to familiarize you with topics, vocabulary and structures used in economic matters in the German-speaking countries. Topics to be covered are economic geography, Germany’s economic system, taxation, the role of unions, globalization, the European Union, advertisement, and the environment. We will work with authentic, up-to-date texts, graphs, and video clips. Hence, the course offers oral and written practice to hone your language skills and to acquaint you with business/economic aspects of the German-speaking countries. Thus, the course is not only of interest to students majoring in commercial German or international business, but also to those intending to live or work abroad.
