GER - German Major




Program Long Title

German Major

Program Code


Program Description

The major consists of ten courses in the German program. Required are: GER 233, at least one 300-level seminar, and and a capstone experience. German majors must take a course in German both semesters of their senior year.

Students starting the major with GER 101 typically take the sequence GER 101, GER 102, GER 201, GER 202, and GER 233, before taking upper-level seminars. Students who have started their major with GER 101 and are studying abroad in a German-speaking country during the fall of their junior year may substitute an appropriate course taken abroad for GER 233.

Courses on German and European history and culture taught by the faculty in the German program, as well as courses relevant to German studies offered in other departments or programs may be counted toward the major with the approval of the faculty advisor.
