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.

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.
