Course Sequence Outline



Major requirements include:

The Major in German Studies consists of eight courses:

  • GR 250 German IV. This course counts towards the major for all students who have taken GR 200 at Saint Anselm College. For students who place into  GR 301 at the start of their studies at Saint Anselm, GR 301 would be the first course that counts towards the major.
  • GR 301 Advanced German I
  • GR 302 Advanced German II
  • Three additional 300-level German courses (students whose major begins with GR 250 will only need two additional 300-level German courses).
  • 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 two German classes and two interdisciplinary classes taken outside of Saint Anselm will be counted toward the major.

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.
