Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Majors, Minors and Other Academic Programs


German courses are aimed at developing skills in the use of the German language, an appreciation of the literature of German-speaking countries, and an acquaintance with the cultures of these countries. Students majoring in German must complete a minimum of 33 semester hours beyond the 100-level courses. Certification to teach German is possible for students who also complete applicable requirements of the School of Education . Education majors planning to teach German are required to spend at least one academic semester or a total of 15 weeks abroad studying the language for which they seek licensure. Although we suggest spending the entire time in one extended visit, students may combine visits to reach the total as long as one visit is a minimum of eight weeks long. The program and projected plan of study should be approved by the student’s academic advisor in the Department of Foreign Languages  prior to enrolling in the program.

Minimum credits required: 33


The remaining credits may be completed with any German courses above the 100 level. The seminars GER 263I  and GER 463  can be substituted for required classes according to the topic. Substitutions require departmental approval.
