*Student majoring in German Translation are expected to have some proficiency in German through high school study. Students with previous German study should take the German Placement Test and enroll in the correct course(s) based on their score. Students who have completed three or four years of high school German should see a German major advisor for placement. Student lacking in sufficient major-level proficiency to take the first major courses (GER 31201 and 31211) can reach proficiency by taking courses in the prerequisite sequence (GER 11201, 11202, 21201 and 21202) based on their placement score and high school training. Students with sufficient German to place into higher semesters are not allowed to take Elementary German I (GER 11201).

**A minimum C grade must be earned in either GER 41216 or GER 41230 to fulfill writing-intensive requirement.

***The Subject Area Specialty is a departmentally approved coherent sequence of courses in one or more other disciplines
(i.e., not in the Department of Modern and Classical Language Studies). In order to be approved, the Subject Area Specialty must include courses in an area or areas that are currently marketable, such as business, legal studies, international relations, political science, computer science, chemistry, physics or other “hard” sciences. The Subject Area Specialty may include a maximum 17 credit hours of a different language in the sequence through composition and/or conversation. Total credits: 30. The recommended Kent Core courses (see Kent Core Summary) may be included within this area with advisor approval.
