Additional Information on the Department of Germanic and Slavic Studies
The major in German Studies consists of a total of 30 credits or ten courses beyond GERM 203, with 4 Foundational courses (12 credits) and 5 Advanced courses (18 credits).
All German studies majors complete three advanced courses, one 400/600-level course, one Advanced Undergraduate Seminar and one Senior Seminar (which fulfills the Capstone requirement). The three advanced courses may include up to two courses taught in English at the 300 level (providing there is a significant reading and writing requirement in German) and/or up to two electives at the advanced level in a related field outside the department, e.g., courses in German art, history, music, philosophy, and politics.
A student entering Tulane without any prior German knowledge could take beginning language classes his/her first three semesters, and then take an average of two courses for the next five semesters.
