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).

Students may take coursework at Hunter College or at accredited study abroad programs such as FUBiS or FU-BEST in order to fulfill their requirements for the minor and major.

Interested students should consult with the academic advisor for German as early as possible.
