Study abroad is essential to attain proficiency in listening, speaking, reading, and writing. Students, therefore, who wish to minor in German are strongly encouraged to study abroad.
Courses must be taught in the target language, i.e., in German. A minimum of a 9-credit summer program or one semester of study in Germany would qualify. For students who are not able to study German abroad, language study in an German immersion setting may be substituted. All programs must be approved by the department chair.
