There are thousands of German companies in the U.S. looking for qualified employees who know German. I am a German professor and our university German program has grown from 2 majors in 2000 to 33 majors today. Our students get lots of scholarships to study abroad in Germany and later they find great jobs for German and U.S. companies, as teachers, and in the military. They are very well prepared for graduate school, too, in any field. Learning German teaches you how to think!
