12 additional hours at the 300, 400, and 500 levels. GERM 315 and GERM 316 are strongly encouraged because they are prerequisites for courses above GERM 402 (except GERM 444 and GERM 462).

One approved 3-credit course offered by another department or program and with significant content related to German-speaking Europe (300-500 level) may be counted toward the German minor. A 600-level course may be counted only with approval of the Undergraduate Advisor.

At least 9 credits at the 300 level and above must be acquired in residence at KU. Credits earned while studying abroad in KU programs are resident KU credits.
