The writing and critical thinking skills that Alex Beezley acquired in the German studies program are giving him an edge in law school.
I graduated from SLU in May 2019 with majors in German studies and history and a minor in legal studies.
The best part of being a part of the German program was being able to take in-depth classes about different topics in German culture. Another thing that I enjoyed was being required to speak and write exclusively in German for my classes. Although this was challenging, it was also rewarding because I became more confident and proficient in my oral and writing skills. Finally, I appreciated the opportunity to study abroad at Heidelberg University, as I was able to become immersed in German culture and improve my oral and written communication skills.
