German Major


Students are required to complete the language sequence up to and including Advanced German (GERM 101-GERM 102, GERM 111-GERM 112, and GERM 211) or demonstrate equivalent proficiency that would allow for advanced placement.

The major consists of a minimum of five courses beyond Advanced German:

GERM Five 300/400-level GERM courses

Five 300/400-level GERM courses: Following completion of the language sequence, majors are required to take at least five 300/400-level course, (GERM 225 may be used as one of the electives), one of which must be taken during the senior year.

The Department recommends that students who plan to undertake graduate work in German pursue honors work in their senior year. All majors are urged to take one or more courses in Comparative Literature. In some cases, courses taken at other institutions may be used to satisfy the requirements for the major.
