Get To Know Us

Dedicated Faculty

Associate professor of German Dr. Holly Liu specializes in postwar and contemporary German-speaking literature and culture.

She frequently travels to Germany and Austria to conduct research in her field and on German and Austrian cultures and current events.

Personal Attention

In addition to Dr. Liu, the German program employs a native-speaking language assistant, who works closely with the German Club. The assistant organizes a bi-weekly language table (Stammtisch) for you to practice language skills with the assistant and other students.

The assistant also organizes cultural events such as German movies and festivals to give you a broader scope of life in Germany. The assistant is also available to help you one-on-one and offers a unique perspective into both the German language and the culture.

Study Abroad in Germany

Alma College offers the opportunity to live and study in Germany for a semester or a year at the University of Heidelberg, University of Konstanz and Goethe Institut/Berlin. Learn more about the programs by talking with Dr. Holly Liu or Carla Jensen, the off-campus study coordinator, or by visiting the Off-Campus Study office in the Center for Student Opportunity.
