What I can talk hours about: Study abroad (especially Berlin and Oxford), working abroad at a political think tank, language study, German history & literature, how amazing the DLCL department is, how to apply for a coterm, international grants—especially the UAR Grants (I got to go to Switzerland because of one!), double-majoring.
A transformative course: German 343: World War Two: Place, Loss, History co-taught by Prof. Amir Eshel (German Studies) and Prof. Alexander Nemerov (Art History)—my thesis was because I took this class.
Fun Fact: The Japanese legal system was inspired by the German civil law legal system.
