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 213.xxx 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 213.2xx-213.4xx series to reach the required 6 courses. Of the remaining four courses, minors choose courses designated as 210.3xx; 211.xxx (with approval) and 213.xxx. No more than three (3) credits of translation courses may be used to fulfill minor requirements. All minor requirements must be completed with a grade of C- or better and may not be taken satisfactory/unsatisfactory.
