A total of five courses (20 credits) above 201 as follows:
- German 301 and 302. Must be taken before any other 300-level course is attempted but may be taken concurrently with others. German 305 taken abroad may be substituted for one of these.
- At least one of the following: German 320-321 (each must be taken in conjunction with one credit of 311.)
- At least one course numbered 340 or higher.
- German 202 may be applied to the minor unless a student places into a higher level course in the curriculum.
Minors are also strongly encouraged to spend at least a semester at the University of Tübingen, the University of Landau, or with a departmentally approved ISEP program; equivalent courses from there will be accepted as substitutes.
