German Study Requirements

The next several pages contain sample course schedules that show you how to fit the German courses into your engineering schedule. One assumes that you start German in your first semester at UConn, the other shows an example on how to do the German degree even if you waited the first two years to start with it. It is your responsibility to obtain the most current plan of study and course schedule for your engineering major. The undergraduate engineering advisor has the current version. There will inevitably be changes during your undergraduate career, since each department strives to keep its program current and first-rate. If you have any questions about changes or different requirements for your engineering major that you see subsequent to this date, see your major advisor listed for that department.

German Studies Major Advisor: Sebastian Wogenstein

These are the requirements for the German Studies Major:

You must take:

3233

3234

3251

3220 + 3221 + 3222

 4246

 

You must take three of these:

3200

3231

3232

3245

     

 

3271

3280W

3261W

     

3285

3293*†

3296*

3298*

     

(* if the course is on a non-literary topic)

At least three LTL courses may be substituted for one of the above.

You must take one of these:

3252W

3253W

3254W

3255W

     

3293*†

3296*

3298*

 
     

(* if the course is on a literary topic)

† This is the course number under which you transfer credits if you do study abroad. See the rules for how to transfer credits.

The BA also requires twelve credits in related field(s) at the 3000-level which in your case are made up by 3000-level Engineering courses.

The schedules assume that you have no previous experience with the language and will begin the program with elementary German. If you have already developed some facility with the language, the German Section will test and place you at the appropriate level of language instruction. A dual degree at the University of Connecticut requires at least 30 credits of additional course work, a total of 164 credits for engineering majors. Advanced placement in German does not reduce the number of courses you have to take, but it does eliminate some required courses and allows more electives.
