Career Opportunities

Founders HallGraduate School Opportunities

Recent Heidelberg graduates with a German major have gone on to graduate studies in German, German/history, education and teaching English as a second language.

Many of our graduates receive assistantships and fellowships for graduate study in the U.S. and scholarships for study at special schools in the U.S. or in Germany. Others have received Fulbright grants for study and teaching in Austria or Germany.

Work Around the World

Germany is one of the world's leading exporters, and most major U.S. companies have sizable investments and offices in Germany. If you want a career here or overseas in government, business, economics, telecommunications, travel trade, journalism, music, armed services, applied sciences, theology, and other areas, a foundation in the German language and culture will make you an attractive candidate to potential employers.
