Minor in German
Note: Students who declared a German minor prior to September 2008 may choose to be subject to the requirements of the Bulletin that was current at the time of their declaration. Students who declare a German minor in or after September 2008 are subject to the following:
Six LG courses numbered 250 or above. These must include at least one course from the sequence LG 303–304; at least one course from the sequence LG 310–345; LG 350; and one course numbered 400 or above. With advisor’s approval, students may include up to three equivalent transfer courses from other colleges, universities, or non-Boston University study abroad programs and must take a minimum of three courses (or a minimum of two, if they have four courses approved for credit toward the minor from Boston University’s program in Dresden) on the Charles River Campus. Internships taken through Boston University’s Study Abroad programs may not be credited toward the minor in German. A grade of C or higher is required in all courses taken toward the minor.
A placement test is required of all students whose most recent course in German was taken while in high school or at a college other than Boston University and who wish to continue their study of this language here. Information on testing dates and times is available in the department.
