The German minor is fulfilled by completing 18 credits of GER courses.
Typically, a student with no previous German knowledge should complete this sequence:
If placed above GER 101 at WCU, after GER 303/307 students should take GER 350 and GER 351; if neither GER 350 or 351 is offered one semester, students could take GER 310, GER 315 or GER 322 instead. Students should always meet and consult first with the German program advisor:
Professor of German
German Program Coordinator
