Requirements

A student can moderate into German Studies with a focus in German literature. Joint majors moderate separately into German Studies and the related discipline (philosophy, music, economics, etc.) or they may integrate German Studies and another field of inquiry into one moderation.

Program and Graduation Requirements

  • Over the four years, students must take 12 courses (48 credits) accredited by the German Studies Program. These 48 credits include the 8 Senior Project Credits.
  • Typically,  8 of the 12 courses are conducted entirely in German.
  • After successfully moderating into the German Studies Program (for general moderation requirements see Student Handbook), students take at least one upper-college literature/culture course per semester in ascending sequence.
  • We strongly recommend and support students spending a Junior Year Abroad at the Humboldt University, Berlin
  • Graduating in German Studies culminates in writing a senior project over the course of the last two semesters. For a list of past projects click here.
