Minor in German
The Minor in German offers students in other majors the opportunity to deepen and broaden their knowledge of German and its literature and culture alongside their major. It requires 18 credits beyond the Elementary/Intermediate sequence. Students take required courses in German grammar, composition, conversation, literature, and civilization, and choose two upper-division electives.
ALL MCLS MINORS AND MAJORS MUST CONSULT AN MCLS ADVISOR EACH SEMESTER.
ALL UPPER-DIVISION COURSES ARE RESTRICTED. ALL STUDENTS REQUIRE A PERMIT FROM AN MCLS ADVISOR IN ORDER TO ENROLL IN SUCH COURSES.
Kaffeestunde (German Coffee Hour)
The department and the German faculty sponsor a German coffee hour (Kaffeestunde). Held weekly during regular semesters, Kaffeestunde is open to students of German at all levels, as well as friends of the German program. Refreshments are offered free of charge and at least one faculty member and one graduate student will be present for chat and conversation practice. German goodies are frequently served.
Through the University's Office of Global Education, students may participate in an exchange program with the Technical University of Dresden or the University of Leipzig.
