… I’m moving out to Los Angeles in July to commence a dual MBA-Master of Urban Planning program at the University of Southern California, the very same university that suspended its undergraduate German program in 2009, though apparently has revived it…you might appreciate that one of my professors is from Hannover. His wife is Viennese…

2017 – William Qualey ’16 writes:  I’m currently living in Vienna on my second year of the “Austria Fulbright” (which is technically called “United States Teaching Assistant Program of the Austrian Ministry of Education, coordinated by Fulbright”). So last year I was at two Gymnasien in Eisenstadt and this year I’m at two Gymnasien in Vienna’s 18th district. I’m really enjoying the chance to live abroad and I actually love teaching a lot more than I thought I would, which has confirmed for me that I maybe want to become a professor later on. I’m not sure what my plans are for next year, but eventually I’d like to return to the U.S. for grad school.

Please feel free to pass my contact information on to students; I’m happy to speak with anyone thinking about study abroad, language assistantships, and ways to continue with German after they graduate.

2017 – Melanie Ungar ’08 received her Ph.D. in Germanic Languages and Literatures from UNC/Duke. Congratulations!
