Unification has underscored the political, economic, and cultural importance of Germany. German has become the second most popular language after English in much of Europe. Germans have also been one of the largest ethnic groups among American immigrants. Students of German, therefore, not only learn about another people; they gain new insights and perspectives on our own history, society, and culture.


A minimum 2.0 g.p.a. is required for all courses in this minor. This minor consists of courses above the 100 level; all courses in German (except those offered credit/no-credit) must be taken for a grade.
