B.A. Major in German Studies
Hours required: 30
After completion of German 202: Intermediate German II, students will need to complete 16 credits as follows:
GERM 315 and GERM 316 must be completed before students can take a course beyond GERM 402 (except GERM 444 and GERM 462).
Admission to 400- and 500-level courses after GERM 402 (except GERM 444 and GERM 462) without completion of GERM 315 and GERM 316 is with permission of the Undergraduate Advisor only.
A minimum of 14 credit hours at the 300, 400, and 500 levels must be completed beyond the required courses. 12 of these credit hours must be at the 400 or 500 level. In exceptional cases, undergraduates may take courses at the 600 level with permission of the Undergraduate Advisor and the instructor.
With permission of the Undergraduate Advisor, 6 credit hours at the 300, 400, or 500 levels may be counted toward the major by completing two approved courses offered by other departments with significant content related to German-speaking Europe. A 600-level course may be counted with approval of the Undergraduate Advisor.
At least 15 hours of coursework at the 300, 400, and 500 levels, including the senior capstone course, GERM 580, must be completed in residence at KU. Credits earned while studying abroad in KU programs are resident KU credits.
