Getting Started

If you have previous German language experience, take the free online placement test. Otherwise, beginning German language students should take the sequential German language course(s) in order to complete the basic language sequence (first year: GER 101/GER 102/first and second year GER 201/GER 202). Students who have tested above GER 202 are invited to enroll in upper-level classes. If you have tested into an upper level course, consult your German faculty advisor. You will need authorization in order to register for upper level courses.

The German program is housed in the Department of World Languages and Cultures in the College of Arts & Humanities in Armstrong Hall. The faculty leader of the program is Dr. Nadja Krämer. Make an appointment if you need additional assistance or advising.

College Advising

Besides advising regarding the German program, students should also consult the Student Relations Coordinator (SRC) in the College of Arts and Humanities who advises students who pursue degrees in all areas within the College. The SRC can assist in general education advising, advising of all majors and minors and provides graduation application assistance.

Major Advising

You should also have a faculty adviser for your major. If you are a German major your faculty adviser is the program director Nadja Krämer. If you are from a different major contact the SRC to find your faculty advisor if you don't have one.
