German Minor

German is among the 10 most commonly spoken languages, and the country is the world’s second-largest exporter. As home to numerous international corporations, Germany offers a world of opportunities to students who can speak the language.

The minor programs give students majoring in other disciplines the language background they need to broaden and enhance career opportunities. A foundation in a foreign language will increase understanding of the scholarly, scientific, and technical information of our foreign allies. View minor requirements in the Undergraduate Catalog.

Native and heritage speakers of German may earn up to 6 units for GERM 301 and/or GERM 302 by taking the department's Challenge Exam.
