The German Minor

The German minor requires that students take 12 credits in language and literature taught in German at the 300-level (GRMN 301-359, 381-444). Students who begin their study of German in college may count the following courses toward the minor:

GERMN 200 (3 credits only)

GERMN 201

GERMN 202

GERMN 203

At least 3 of the credits for a German minor must be earned by taking a literature class numbered between GERMN 320 and GERMN 359.

The minor in German aims to help students develop their linguistic and cultural knowledge so that they can perform at the level of Intermediate High on the ACTFL scale (1+ on the ILR scale) or at the level B1 according to the Common European Framework in speaking listening, reading, writing, and cultural knowledge. Typical assessments will include student participation in internationally recognized B1 tests and periodic Oral Proficiency Interviews.

Our minors say that they appreciate:
  • the fact that they know their professors well, and their professors know them
  • the use of our library / tutoring room
  • the opportunity to study abroad in the summer
  • exposure to a culture that is brand new to them

They have gone on to graduate school in fields like comparative literature, library science, law, and international relations. They have found work in consulting agencies and in prestigious publishing houses.
