German Minor Requirements

Students are encouraged to declare their intent to minor in German in their sophomore year and to make an advising appointment with the Director of Undergraduate Studies to discuss their academic plans, including options for a study abroad semester or year.

Students must complete a minimum of 6 courses (with each course counting for at least 3 credits) in German beyond Elementary German (AS.210.161 German Elements I-AS.210.162 German Elements II) and Intermediate German (AS.210.261 Intermediate German I-AS.210.262 Intermediate German II).

Minors are required to complete the Advanced German sequence, (AS.210.361 Advanced German I: Cultural Topics of the Modern German-speaking World-AS.210.362 Advanced German II: Contemporary Issues in the German Speaking World), which counts for 6 credits (2 courses)  and is a prerequisite for upper-level seminars taught in German. Students with previous proficiency exempting them from taking Advanced German I or II are required to take a course(s) from the AS.213.2xx-AS.213.4xx series to reach the required 6 courses. 

Of the remaining four courses, minors choose courses designated AS.210.3xx (German language), (with POS-TAG MLL-GERM), courses in other departments with the POS-TAG MLL-GERM, and No more than three (3) credits of courses taught in English (courses with POS-Tag MLL-ENGL) may be used to fulfill minor requirements. Courses taken at another institution that are not directly equivalent to a JHU course may not apply towards the minor without permission of the Director of Undergraduate Studies. All minor requirements must be completed with a grade of C- or better and may not be taken satisfactory/unsatisfactory.
