German and Scandinavian Studies Courses

German and Scandinavian Studies | Courses | Faculty

The Courses

(All courses carry 3 credits unless otherwise noted. Students seeking to study German or Swedish and who have completed three years of a sequence in this language in Grades 9 through 12 will usually be placed in GERMAN 230. Students who meet the above criterion may not normally take GERMAN 110 or 120 for credit, and must arrange to meet with the undergraduate adviser if they wish to do so. Students who believe their abilities warrant credit at a higher level – placement in 240 or above– must speak with the Undergraduate Adviser.)
