German Major

Why German?
German courses are designed to give the student a reading and speaking knowledge of the German language and an introduction to German literature. Since language is a vital expression of the mentality of a people, such training will help the student to understand better the nature of the German people. Courses also prepare students to become acquainted with German contributions to the fields of art, science, and philosophy. Students who have passed two years of German in high school may be placed in GERM 2301.
