Major A

Major A focuses on literary and non-literary texts in their historical and intellectual contexts.


Two courses at the intermediate level (German 10.00, German 10.01, German 10.03, German 10.06, or permission of the Chair.)

Major-level courses

  • Eight courses numbered above 13
  • All three courses in the Foreign Study Program in Berlin receive major credit (German 29, 30, and 31)
  • German 42-47 (in translation) require additional work in German. Normally only one may count toward the major.

With permission of the chair, you may substitute one appropriate course in another department.
