Program Information
The German minor at SDSU consists of language, culture, literature and professional courses to prepare students for careers in which they will use German as a language for communication. The minor offers flexibility and can easily be added to another major.

Student Learning Outcomes
Upon the completion of the German minor, students should be able to:

  • Speak, read and write German
  • Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the cultures and communication cultures of the German-speaking world
  • Demonstrate knowledge of the German civilizations and its cultural products, such as literature, art, government, etc.

Academic Requirements
There are no application requirements to enroll in the German minor. However, students with previous knowledge of the language must take the placement test and register for an appropriate course. Additionally, all the courses for the minor must be passed with a grade of “C” or better.

Course Delivery Format
Most courses in the German program are offered face-to-face on campus. Some upper-division courses are offered as part of the German cooperative program with NSU and USD and they use different types of distance delivery, including simultaneous television (DDN) and online delivery.

Requirements for German Minor: 18 Credits
