Course Sequence Outline



Major requirements include:

The Major in German Studies consists of eight courses:

  • Five German courses numbered GR250 and above: One of these five courses must be GR301 which can be taken at any time of the course sequence. Two of these five courses must be at the level of GR324 or above.  
  • Three additional classes from other departments that have an extensive focus on German-speaking countries.

It is recommended that German Studies majors spend a semester in Germany, Austria or Switzerland. A maximum of three courses taken outside of Saint Anselm College will be counted toward the German Studies major. These three courses can either consist of two German courses and one interdisciplinary course or two interdisciplinary courses and one German course. German Studies majors will complete their major by passing an oral and a written comprehensive examination. The questions on the written exam will reflect the student’s course work, and the oral exam in German will be based on the student’s coursework as well as a current text from German media at the time of the exam.
