Courses Required for the Degree: 27 Hours


German majors need to complete 24 semester hours of German courses above the GRMN 1001 -GRMN 2002  sequence; GRMN 3101 , GRMN 3102 , and GRMN 4484  are required and at least 12 semester hours must be chosen from courses at the 4000 level. These are the German courses currently offered:

In Addition

Students are required to have either done an internship or language program in a German-speaking country. This is NOT necessarily a credit hour or course requirement, as participation in a study abroad program satisfies it and certain non-credit-bearing internships, with the permission of the German faculty, could as well. No more than 5 of the required hours may come from internships and no more than 9 of the required hours may be transferred from a pre-approved overseas program. At least 12 hours of 3000- and 4000-level German courses must be taken at the University of West Georgia.

Electives: 33 Hours

The International Languages and Cultures Program strongly recommends to its majors that 3 electives be courses at the 3000 or above level in their major language. The German Section further recommends that its majors take electives that support their major, including German or European history, German philosophy, music, and/or art, and English courses on periods, topics, theory, and writing. Majors are required to seek advisement from the German faculty.

Total: 120 Hours
