German Studies Minor

Five courses above GERM 2030 (=15 credits)
Two of these five courses are required:

  • GERM 3050 Grammar and Composition and
  • One 4000-level course

The remaining three courses may be selected from advanced language, literature, or culture courses in consultation with the designated departmental advisor. One course taught in the department in English at the 3000 level is allowed (providing there is a significant reading and writing requirement in German).

STUDY ABROAD GUIDELINES

For all major and minors, the department strongly recommends at least one semester of study abroad in Germany. Prior to participation, majors and minors are encouraged to complete at least GERM 3050, although the ideal study abroad candidate will have taken three courses at the 3000 level. Grades and credits will transfer for Tulane affiliated programs. Other exchange programs may receive credit upon departmental review.

For German majors who study abroad:

The 6000 level course must be taken on campus. Students returning from JYA or JSA may only take 4000-6000 level courses.

For German minors who study abroad:

6 credits (2 classes) must be taken on campus in the department. Students returning from JYA or JSA may only take 4000-6000 level courses.
