German in Undergraduate degree courses: Since 1997 DCAC offers German as one of the disciplines in B.A. Programme. With the arrival of CBCS in the year 2015 Generic Elective (GE) German for B.A. Hons. Students was also introduced. Skill Enhancement Courses (SEC) in German were also introduced in B.A. Prog. in 2016. There is permanent and guest faculty in the college to take care of these courses.

In the 1st and 2nd years of B.A. Prog. the emphasis is on learning the basics of the language and applying the same for oral and written expression. In the 3rd year the emphasis is on consolidating the already acquired skills and also reading and interpreting small literary texts that provide the students a glimpse into the history of Germany or famous works of well known authors. At the same time students have to acquire and polish translation skills as well. For this purpose contemporary texts or texts from magazines and newspaper are selected. SEC has given the students an opportunity to learn German by means of poems, songs and films. GE German course on the other hand tries to teach basics of the language and develop the interest of students who are otherwise pursuing an honours courses.

The department encourages the students to participate in activities like poster and PPT making and essay writing. The students also learn to work as a team for organization of webinar etc. The students are also encouraged to find extra learning material available in the internet and specially You Tube.

Add on Courses in German: Since 2006 the college is also offering one year certificate/diploma course in German. These courses are open to all the students who may/may not be pursuing a degree course from the college or university. The guest faculty recommended by GRS dept. teaches these courses.

While some of students join the courses with a specific purpose of studying or working in Germany, others simply want to learn something new. Most of the students associate Germany with science and technology and industrial development. For those interested in philosophy, literature, theater and history Germany and German language are of great interest. Learning German definitely facilitates the chances of all these students to study their subject in depth. An opportunity to study or work in Germany is a great attraction for all these students.

Facilities for the students: The library of the colleges houses not only text books but also a number of books that help the students hone their German skills and provide them with extra knowledge about the German speaking countries.
