Graduates 2012-2013

Liesel Herzl-Betz ’13 Senior Profile: German Studies

HerzlBetzI chose to study German because of my family history, but the German Studies Department has taught me that there is so much more to the subject than just acquiring the language.  I have gained a sense of the history of Germany within a European context, I have learned about the culture and seen it come to life outside of the classroom when I studied abroad through the Potsdam Program, and I have a greater appreciation for the intricacies of global relations and my own place as an American in that spectrum.

I am currently applying for jobs with international applications, many with German museums and institutions, in DC and Philadelphia for next year, and I plan to continue on to law school the following fall.
