German Studies Class of 2022


As we say farewell to another outstanding academic year, we congratulate our awardees and graduating seniors.  This is a moment best described as bittersüß, especially since we enjoyed such an exceptionally strong and large group of seniors this year.  While we still find ourselves in challenging and difficult times, we cherish this moment of celebration and look back to a year filled with memorable events, fulfilling classes, and rich conversations.  Thank you to all the students, colleagues, alumni, and friends who have helped make this year such a delightful and gratifying experience.  Thank you especially to our staff, Terez Whatley-White and Dominique Thiers-Schmidt, whose tireless engagement made all of the above possible.

- Caroline Schaumann, Professor and Chair

"As a student of German Studies at Emory, I engaged with sophisticated readings and assignments and a different culture from my own, all while developing my linguistic abilities. These efforts strengthened my critical thinking skills and helped me to develop a sense of cultural empathy. I appreciate that my studies in the Emory German Studies Department enabled me to gain an enriching perspective on German culture."

- Thomas Heagy, German Studies Major

"My most notable memory in the German Studies department was having the opportunity to travel to Berlin this spring and being able to explore the city. I particularly loved Friedrichshain, a hip neighborhood next to Mitte."

- Max Wang, German Studies Major
