In 2014 the department got permission from the SPPU to introduce German as a special subject for B.A.

A landmark agreement was signed between Modern College and PASCH, an initiative by the German education ministry, on 22nd April, 2009.

Under this agreement, all the teachers and students are given help in various forms for learning and enhancing the knowledge of German language, thus spreading importance of learning foreign languages.
