Major in German

33 credits including German 204 are required for the major. Students must take at least 24 credits from among language courses in the 200 series and from among courses in the 300 series. The remaining 9 credits may be taken from among any other German courses, including those taught in English (German 41, German 50, German 310-315)

Currently, German majors will also need to take coursework at Hunter College in order to fulfill requirements for the major. Interested students are urged to consult with the academic adviser for German as early as possible in order to plan their programs.

The department encourages interested students to take the various standard examinations such as that for the Certificate "Deutsch als Fremdsprache," issued by the Goethe-Institut in Munich through the Goethe House New York. Further information about the composition of these tests, as well as about the dates on which they are administered may be obtained from the academic adviser.

Minor in German

The minor in German combines the study of German language, literature, and culture with one particular discipline outside the German program. The Department's program in German is designed to appeal to a wide range of interests and to prepare students for a variety of professions. The minor in German requires 15 credits beyond German 203 or its equivalent. 6 credits must be taken from among language courses in the 200 series (223-236); at least 3 credits are required in the 300 series. The remaining 6 credits may be taken from any of the courses above the level of 204, including those taught in English translation (German 41, German 250, German 310-315).

Interested students are urged to consult with the academic adviser for German as early as possible in order to plan their programs.
