German Minor

Minor Requirements

A minor in German requires eighteen hours of course work on the 200-level and above.

A maximum of two courses on the 200-level:


  1. All six courses may be taken above the 200-level. Only one German course taught in English (GERM 280 , GERM 290 , GERM 398 , or GERM 580 ) may count towards the minor.
  2. Students majoring in Business are encouraged to enroll in GERM 316  and GERM 416 .
  3. A maximum of six hours of GERM 333 , Summer Study Abroad, may apply to the German minor.
  4. Transfer credit from study in the exchange programs with Bamberg and Wittenberg may be included in the German minor.
  5. Students who begin their German minor with knowledge of German and who are placed in the 300-level or higher may petition for credit-by-examination (for a maximum of 6 credits). The student who wants to become proficient in communication skills would, most likely, take the GERM 310 , GERM 311 , GERM 411 , 510 sequence.
