minor requires that students take 12 credits in language and/or literature
taught in German at the 300-level (GRMN 301-359, 381-444). Students who begin their study of German in
college may count GRMN 201 and GRMN 202 (or GRMN 203) towards the minor and
will need to take two courses at the 300-level.
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.
