All major programs in German are designed individually by the student in consultation with the designated departmental advisor. The major in German consists of at least 30 credits or ten courses beyond GERM 2030 Intermediate German. These courses are organized into two groups: I. foundational courses (four courses, 12 credits) and II. advanced courses (six courses, 18 credits), as outlined below.
3 courses chosen from the following:
Three advanced courses, one 4000/6000-level course, one Advanced Undergraduate Seminar and one Senior Seminar (which fulfills the Capstone requirement). The three advanced courses may include up to two courses taught in English at the 3000 level (providing there is a significant reading and writing requirement in German) and/or up to two electives at the advanced level in a related field outside the department, e.g., courses in German art, history, music, philosophy, and politics.
The other three courses may include:
