The German major at DePaul offers several interdisciplinary options to study German, along with the flexibility to double-count courses—either between a second major, minor or the learning domains—to more efficiently complete the degree. Majors in German must complete a total of 12 courses (48 quarter hours), comprised of an 8-course core at the Intermediate and Advanced levels and a 4-course concentration in “German Studies,” “German Language and Literature," or “Commercial German.”
Open elective credit also is required to meet the minimum graduation requirement of 192 hours. Majors in German should select these courses in consultation with the German Program Director and Modern Languages Staff Advisor. Students can use their open electives to pursue a double major or one or more minors.
