This is an archived copy of the 2017-2018 catalog. To access the most recent version of the catalog, please visit

The German minor is appropriate for those who have a special interest in the German language, literature, and culture; and those who intend to enter fields in which a background in foreign languages and literatures is desirable, such as international business and law, trade, journalism, science, library science, government service, and international service organizations.

A minor consists of five courses in German numbered 503 and above. The minor may include one course taught in English but not LLC 791 Methods of Foreign Language Teaching.

You do not need to declare a minor; however, it might be wise to meet with a faculty member from the German program to discuss your minor plan.

At the beginning of your final semester of study, you should complete a certification of completion of minor form, obtain the necessary signatures, and submit it to your Dean's Office.
