General Education Requirements

To optimize your German course work as part of Gen Ed, there are two options:

Option 1:

  • Content Area 1:

A (Arts): Germ 3261W B (Literature): Germ 3255 (the one we typically offer from the sequence 3252 – 3255) C (History): Take any one course listed here in the Catalogue D (Philosophy/Ethical Analysis): PHIL 104 required for Engineers (no substitutes)

A,B,C,D,E: Take one additional course, but NOT a Germ course because you need courses from four different academic units.

= 5 Courses

  • (Content Areas 2 and 3 have no German courses, the requirements are the same as for the School of Engineering)
  • Content Area 4:

Use Germ 3261W for the “double dip” Take Germ 3251 for the other course in this area

Option 2:

  • Content Area 1:

A: Germ 3261W OR B: Germ 3255 C: Take any one course listed here in the Catalogue D: Take any one course listed here in the Catalogue E (World Cultures): Germ 3251

= 5 courses

  • (Content Areas 2 and 3 have no German courses, the requirements are the same as for the School of Engineering)
  • Content Area 4:

Germ 3251 and Germ 3261W, either one can be the “double” dip, both courses together fulfill Area 4 requirements = 2 courses

With both options you will already have earned 9 credits of the 24 – 2000 level German credits required for the German Studies major (Germ 3251, 3261W and 3255).
