Modified Major

The modified major combines German Studies with another discipline in a coherent program of study approved by the chair of the Department of German Studies. This major is designed individually by the student with a departmental adviser. It often includes Dartmouth’s Foreign Study Program in Berlin.

Prerequisites

Two of the following courses: German 6 or German 10.00; German 10.01, German 10.02, German 10.03; permission of the Chair. [Beginning with the Class of 2020, two of the following courses: German 10.00, German 10.01, German 10.02, German 10.03; permission of the Chair.]

The modified portion

You can choose four courses beyond the introductory level that are taught in one other department or program. These courses must be approved by the chair of the Department of German Studies.

The German Studies Portion

You must complete six courses numbered above German 13. German 42-47, which are in translation, require additional work in German, and normally only one such 40s course may count towards a major.
