Modern Foreign Languages and Literatures Major, BA – German Concentration (uTrack Requirements)

Majors in German should carefully prepare their programs in consultation with a departmental faculty advisor. The major consists of at least 30 hours of German in courses numbered above 300, with at least 6 hours from GERM 411 , GERM 412 , GERM 419 , GERM 433 , GERM 434 , GERM 455 , or GERM 485 . Two courses from GERM 321 , GERM 322 , GERM 324 , GERM 325 , and GERM 326  are required. With the approval of the faculty advisor, the student may count up to 6 hours of coursework taken outside of German towards the major (for example: Modern Foreign Languages and Literatures, History, Geography, Musicology, Philosophy, Art History, Religious Studies, Cinema Studies). In order to graduate, majors will be required to take a proficiency test in German by registering for MFLL 495  (0 credit hours).

uTrack Requirements

Universal Tracking (uTrack) is an academic monitoring system designed to help students stay on track for timely graduation. In order to remain on track, students must complete the minimum requirements for each tracking semester, known as milestones. Milestones include successful completion of specified courses and/or attainment of a minimum GPA. uTrack requirements only affect full-time, degree-seeking students who first entered Fall 2013 or later. uTrack does not apply to transfer students who entered prior to Fall 2015.

Following the sample academic plan and its uTrack milestones will help students stay on track to graduate in four years. For specific course requirements, refer to the description of the major and the College of Arts and Sciences requirements  listed in the Catalog, and consult an academic advisor.
