Major B

Major B combines the resources of the Department of German Studies with a coherent selection of courses from other departments and programs.


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

  • Six courses from the Department of German Studies 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.
  • Four courses beyond the introductory level that are taught in other departments or programs such as Art History, Comparative Literature, Film Studies, Geography, Government, History, Jewish Studies, Music, Philosophy, or Religion.

In principle, any relevant course in the Dartmouth curriculum that is approved by the Department of German Studies may qualify for this major.
