  • In the German program from University of Waterloo, we offer very strong programming in cultural studies - we cover literature, film, and theory across all periods and genres.
  • We offer very strong programming in applied linguistics. Theory, second language acquisition, discourse analysis, computer-assisted language learning - we do it all.
  • We offer excellent training for both academic and non-academic careers. With us you'll gain in-depth, guided experience in teaching language and culture courses, both in-class and online.
