Beginning Language Instruction


The Department of Germanic Languages and Literatures offers beginning language instruction in German and Swedish. All three levels of German are offered every semester. Language courses in Swedish are offered less frequently.

Students may also choose to enroll in our German Individualized Instruction courses, where they work at their own pace, earning 1-4 credits of Beginning and Intermediate German each semester. DL coursework is also available.

For information regarding textbooks in the German classroom track, please check the syllabi below.

Students with credit for German 1103 may complete the GC language sequence by participating in our Dresden Study Abroad Program.
