For students minoring in German, the program provides a foundation in language, culture, literature, and writing. The German minor prepares students with a professional level of oral communication, often sought by international companies and organizations, as well as a thorough understanding of the culture of German-speaking countries. The minor in German is a very flexible program designed to complement various majors. It provides a basis for graduate level reading in many related academic areas.
Students who are considering the German minor in the Department of Modern Languages are expected to consult with faculty for advising. A letter grade of "C-" or better is necessary in each of the required courses.
