Majors in German must complete a total of 12 advanced courses (48 quarter hours), comprised of a common 8-course core and a 4-course concentration in “German Studies,” “German Language and Literature, or “Commercial German.”
Students who begin their study of German at DePaul with GER 202 or higher may substitute a 300-level German elective course for any of the required 200-level courses. No English-language ("E-designation") courses can be applied toward any German language requirement of the major.
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.
