This course serves as an introduction to the tools that are vital for pursuing further science-based work in German – practical or academic. Recently, one of the reasons why students have taken this course has been to prepare themselves for summer internships available with German companies or for study abroad in technical and scientific fields.

In addition to reading various scientific articles, we will go on excursions to the Hands on Museum, and the Exhibit Museum of Natural History, students will have the opportunity to present some fun experiments in groups; there will be an elementary math lesson (or more if the class is interested) as well as presentations by other guest speakers, etc.

In addition, we will pause along the way to consider the nature of science and the cultural values that can underlie it, as well as the ethical implications that a rapidly increasing amount of technology and knowledge has on our society today. The necessary vocabulary and grammar will be provided along the way. No background in math or science is assumed. Grades will be based on participation, homework, quizzes, presentations/projects, and exams.

By the end of the course, students will be ready to pursue an internship or study abroad in Germany, and are strongly encouraged to take advantage of the assistance offered by the German department and by the Office of International Programs in this regard.

    Credits: (3).

    Course Homepage: No homepage submitted.

    At the dawn of the 20th century, Alma Schindler was regarded as the most beautiful, talented and intelligent woman in all Vienna. As we read her autiobiography, Mein Leben, we look into the lives and works of artists, writers, composers, musicians and political figures whom she influenced, including her several spouses (Gustav Mahler, Walther Gropius, Franz Werfel) and intimate friends and lovers. We try to understand how art could flourish so brilliantly in the shadow of impending chaos, as Vienna –the city of dreams – came to embrace German Fascism. Readings from Alma's autobiography are supplemented by videos; paintings by Oskar Kokoschka, Gustav Klimt, Egon Schiele; musical compositions by herself, Gustav Mahler, Alexander von Zemlinsky, Richard Strauss, Alban Berg, Maurice Ravel, Hanz Pfitzner, Arnold Schönberg, Ernst Krenek; and passages from works by writers such as Georg Büchner, Franz Werfel, Heinrich Mann, Thomas Mann, Bertha Zuckerkandl, Franz Kafka, and others.

    Class time is devoted to students' oral presentations, viewing videos and paintings, listening to and discussing music (songs, symphonies and operas), discussing representative works by contemporary authors, and surveying the political events of the time.

    Requirements: at least three oral presentations in class, one two-page essay every second week, a 15-page term-paper, and active participation in class discussions. Alles auf Deutsch, natürlich. Matters of German grammar, style, pronunciation etc. are treated according to the needs of the students. Since students are exposed to far more than they can possibly learn, there are no quizzes, no tests, no final exam–students choose what they want to learn and write about it.
