Any course with the GERM subject code or the GERM attribute code may fulfill this requirement.

Students who place out of GERM 1501, GERM 1502, or GERM 2001 must replace them with upper-level elective courses to count toward their course requirements.

Majors are able to enroll in the MLAL German courses with an integrated study abroad component, offered every spring semester, beginning in their freshman year. Up to three related courses may be taken from a department other than modern languages and literatures but must be approved by the German studies major adviser in advance.

A maximum of two courses taken abroad for one semester and a maximum of three courses taken abroad for one year may apply toward the German studies major. These courses must be approved by the German studies major adviser prior to studying abroad.
