The Department is also closely affiliated with various interdisciplinary programs: These include: Africa in the New World (ANW), Asian Studies, Communication and Media Studies (CMS), International Relations (IR), International Letters and Visual Studies (ILVS), Judaic Studies, as well as Middle Eastern Studies.
Eight majors and two graduate degrees are offered through the department. The undergraduate majors include: Chinese, German Language and Literature, German Studies, Japanese, Judaic Studies, International Letters and Visual Studies, Russian Language and Literature, and Russian and East European Studies. The two graduate programs are the M.A. in German and the M.A. in German with Teaching Licensure. The department also offers a wide range of minors. These minors include: Arabic, Chinese, German, Japanese, Judaic Studies, and Russian.
The Department also sponsors German, Russian/Slavic, Chinese and Japanese houses where students studying those languages/cultures are able to live and immerse themselves in their respective languages/cultures of interest. Numerous study abroad programs are offered through the Department. Students are able to study at prestigious universities on Tufts hosted programs in Germany, China, and Japan.
