German (minor)

Student Studying

The German language and culture program includes two-plus years of German language study based on a communicative approach that emphasizes listening, speaking, reading and writing skills, as well as cultural studies.

All students with previous German study are required to take the Language Placement Test for placement into the appropriate skills section.


A minimum of 20 credits beyond GMN 1111 - Beginning German Language and Culture I, including:

  • GMN 1112 Beginning German Language and Culture II
  • GMN 2201 Intermediate German I
  • GMN 2202 Intermediate German II 

Remaining credits may be fulfilled by any other GMN courses, GCL 3302 Europe Today, GCL/CTA 3202 - Culture through Film, Section 002 courses and study abroad options.

All minors are also required to participate in a summer language program abroad, preferably at the Goethe Institute (four weeks/4 cr.) or other credited study abroad programs may be substituted with permission of the instructor, who also reserves the right to substitute requirements when warranted.

Formats and Locations

The German minor is offered in a traditional, on-campus format at our main Duluth campus.
