Declaring a Major or Minor

Students wishing to declare a German major should obtain a "Declaration of Major" form from the Dean's office. Students who already have a major in another discipline are welcome to choose German as their second major. 

To make an appointment, please send an email to Prof. Friederike Eigler, Chair of the German Department, at She will then assign you an advisor and sign your declaration of major form. Signed forms should be returned to the Dean's office.

German Minor: Requirements

Students majoring in other subjects are welcome to minor in German. Eighteen credit hours taught in German above Intensive Basic German (011) or Introductory German II (002) are required, nine of which need to be at a level above 150. Please visit the College's website here for more information. If you have further questions, please contact Prof. Eigler.

NOTE: Courses taken through the Georgetown summer program at Trier apply toward the Major or Minor.
