Our website and newsletter feature news from KU graduates who have studied German Studies and gone on to interesting and successful lives and careers. This page aims in part to help prospective and current KU students understand how language study can change one's life for the better by opening new experiences and opportunities. We believe (and we hope you agree) that the study of a language and culture other than one's own is part of what is contributing to your success.
