Requirement for the German Studies minor:
Requirements for students matriculating in the fall semester 2015:
Students minoring in German Studies are required to complete up to a total of six units from 101 through 202; if they wish, they may replace GER202 with either GER247/8, or GER219 (both taught in English) when these are offered by the department; if neither is offered during a given year, students may select a course from another discipline from the list of approved courses attached below. Students minoring in German are also strongly encouraged to spend one semester in Germany or Austria to complete their minor requirements, or alternatively to take the courses appropriate to their level through 202 along with GER219 or GER247/8 and complete the minor with independent studies. Students participating in the Vienna program may earn up to two, and those in the ISEP or a similar program up to three credits towards the completion of the minor.
AP Credit: students who have earned a 4 on the AP exam will receive credit for GER101; those who have earned a 5 will receive credit for GER101 and GER102.

Students participating in the Vienna program may count the language course as well as two general culture courses toward the completion of the minor.
