German as a subject was introduced in 1995 when ICG (IIS deemed to be University in its earlier version) was still affiliated to the University of Rajasthan. The Department of German was established finally in the year 1998. 

Now IIS deemed to be University has already implemented New Education Policy (NEP) in all the departments since 2023-24. Accordingly German department offers Generic Course as free elective at undergraduate level which can be chosen by students of any stream pursuing science, arts or commerce  courses simultaneously. Besides this the department also offers German as regular elective course in B.A.(Pass Course) with various subject combinations and as subsidiary with B.A.(Honours) in English and Psychology. COSD courses in German too are being offered by the department in order to provide the students with parallel career opportunities as well as to brighten up their career chances in their chosen field of studies. This is in fact the reason why the department has offered these value added courses and some other interdisciplinary courses wherein the students are getting trained well. On one hand such course structure help students develop new skills and on the other hand it also enables them to face the formidable challenges of the job market. In this regard all the courses offered by the German Department have been  able to achieve their objectives quite well as scores of students have benefited from these courses every year.

We have done a thorough overhauling of curricula of all the courses so as to make them learner centric with the inclusion of audio-visual inputs as well as exercises based on creativity and self-discovery. This has also helped us in taking up new pedagogical strategies where teacher can work more as a motivator and instructor creating more space for students’ participation in order to optimize their potential.

With a view to keep the students abreast of various developments in language, literature and culture of Germany and German speaking countries, the department regularly organizes German Film show, German Song workshop and guest lectures. This provides the students a very active opportunity for learning and understanding in a very cognitive manner. Above all the department always welcomes any idea that may help to grow up and develop according to the demands of time.
