Major (B.A., B.S.) or Minor
Ger/Scan Studies offers a menu of customizable pathways through the language, literature, history, philosophy, music, art, politics, and societies of the region, plus personal guidance from a faculty mentor. Like all of our degree programs, it can be pursued by both B.A. and B.S. students and as either a major or minor.
Here are checklists of the major requirements and minor requirements, as well as a list of upcoming courses that count for the major. Please contact an advisor to declare a major or to ask any questions.
Students desiring advanced language ability should consider our regular majors in German or Scandinavian.
- History and politics
- Art, design, and music
- Storytelling and writing
- Gender and sexuality
- Study abroad in Germany
Individually customized pathways combining these themes—or others—are also possible in consultation with a faculty mentor or the department advisor.
The pathways above are designed for majors but may be modified for students in the Ger/Scan Studies minor. Special arrangements can also be made for students studying Swedish.
