German Minor

Minors in German must take a minimum of six courses numbered GERM 1501 INTERMEDIATE GERMAN I and higher, to be selected in consultation with the assigned departmental German minor advisor.

These six courses, to be completed all in German, will normally include:

Course Title Credits
Select four electives numbered above GERM 1501.
At least two of these must be above the 3000 level.

Students who place out GERM 1501, GERM 1502, or GERM 2001 must replace them with upper-level elective courses to receive credit toward the minor. 

AP and IB credits will not count toward the minor.

Students minoring in German may apply a total of two study abroad courses toward the minor. These courses must be approved by the German minor advisor prior to studying abroad.


The minor in German is available at Fordham College at Rose Hill and Fordham College at Lincoln Center. Students in Fordham School of Professional and Continuing Studies may minor in German only if they schedules are sufficiently flexible to permit them to take day classes at the Rose Hill or Lincoln Center campuses.
