In addition to its offering German courses the German Studies Department offers other activities that help provide students with a broader knowledge of German culture.

The German Club offers students activities throughout the year and promotes the German Table, or Stammtisch, which is a place where students can practice their German-speaking skills. The Heinz Bluhm Memorial Library is located in the German Department and is open to the entire Boston College community. The Luther Index Verborum is an ongoing major scholarly project housed in the Department with an online database of Martin Luther's Writings.

Finally, the German Department has been successful with its students applying for the Fulbright Scholarship. In 2006-2007 we actually produced 13 Fulbright scholars for post-graduate work in Germany, which was the most that year of any university in the United States. Boston Globe
