Co-Curricular German Opportunities

Digital Humanities

Advanced Training and Collaborative Experience

Starting in October, you can join German, Austrian, and British students for a series of lectures, film screenings and discussions, and lots of opportunities to make friends and connections in Europe. You can also participate in the digital initiative: #EveryNameCounts.

Professional Networking

Connect with Germans through the Peer-Buddy Program

Meet virtually with professional trainees (Azubis) from Germany in a series of talks from mid-September through the end of October. Enjoy conversations with Germans selected by our grant-funding partner, The Herz Foundation of Hamburg, Germany.

Community Engagement

Foster Communication with German Speakers in the Atlanta Metro

Practice your German and establish a  correspondence with Georgia's German-speaking seniors. Earn bonus points in your course, or simply enjoy learning how to write a postcard in German – and get something much better than a bill in the mail in return! Watch the video!

International Business

Research International Markets and Gain Consultancy Experience

Are you interested in international business, real-world market research, and networking? Pegasus Partners will pay for your support in researching opportunities for mid-size companies from Germany/Austria. Requirements are that you are able to work independently and under direction. No technical or business background is necessary, but an interest in those fields is essential.

Translation and Curation

Contribute your Language Skills to KSU's Holocaust History Exhibits

If you are interested in history, museum work, and language study, our collaboration with the KSU Museum of History and Holocaust Education (MHEE) may offer you an entry point to your future career! Join us in our project of translating video subtitles, exhibit panels, and audio guides to “Anne Frank In Translation,” a multi-media exhibition on one of the world’s most famous women.
