German Language and Literature Concentration

​ Students choosing the Language and Literature concentration will likely fall into one of two categories:
  • Students who choose to complete a majority, if not all, of their coursework in the German language and through German program offerings (i.e. courses with the “GER” designation), which are largely culture-, literature-, history-, and film-oriented.
  • Students who have an academic or professional interest in the structures and mechanics of language, along with questions of second language acquisition and cognition.  The “Language” part of this concentration allows students to take elective courses in Linguistics and/or Second Language Acquisition from departments and programs around the university.
After declaring the German major with the Language and Literature concentration, students should meet with the German Program Director to discuss which of these two pathways best fits their interests and academic/postgraduate goals. 

Electives (16 quarter hours)

4 courses from MOL, GER, or affiliated departments.
