Dr. Kirsten Krick-Aigner and Dr. Beate Brunow are the faculty of the German Program. Dr. Krick-Aigner, Associate Professor of German, is Advisor and Coordinator of the German Program and Advisor of the German Honor Society, Delta Phi Alpha. Dr. Brunow, Assistant Professor of German, also teaches Humanities 101 courses. She joins us from Penn State where she completed her dissertation on 19th-century artist-drama.
The German Program at Wofford is very active on campus and in the Spartanburg community with annual events, such as the campus-wide Oktoberfest, the Spartanburg International Festival, the German Christmas Party, Karneval, and our end-of-the-year Grillfest. In addition, the program offers weekly and monthly activities, such as film and pizza nights, Stammtisch, Kaffee und Kuchen, lectures, and musical evenings. Please let us know if there are any additional activities or events you would like to offer or attend.
Our students are highly engaged on campus and in the community. We welcome all of our new German students to our program and to our events! Our current Delta Phi Alpha President, Katie Smith, is a German and Art History double major who just returned from her Junior Year abroad in Berlin, Germany. Please contact her at email@example.com. Barbara Steacy, Vice President of Delta Phi Alpha, is a German major and has returned from her Junior Year Abroad in Freiburg, Germany. Please contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Many of our students are double and even triple majors. Over the last five years four of German majors, Claudia Winkler, John Wood, Jessica Miller and, recently, Caitlin Walsh, were awarded prestigious Fulbright English Teaching Assistantships to Germany. Currently, three of our former German majors live and work in Germany!
