Major/Minor Requirements

Students interested in German Studies may currently choose one of three possible approaches at the Colorado College.

Teacher Licensure

Students may qualify for secondary school teaching licensure under any of the above-mentioned options in German.  The minimum requirements beyond intermediate German include GR 305, GR 315, GR 316, GR 229, and any two additional 300-level courses.  For complete course and state requirements, please consult with the Education Department at Colorado College.

Students in any of the German major or minor options are encouraged to participate in a well-established Study Abroad Program through the Colorado College or another institution.
  • Colorado College Exchange Program: Two to four full scholarships are awarded each year to qualified CC students for study at either the University of Regensburg or the University of Göttingen during the junior or senior year.
  • Other programs: Visit CC's International Programs Office in the Worner Center for information on other programs in German-speaking countries.
  • In order to receive transfer credit from non-CC programs, students must keep detailed documentation (course syllabi, notes, reading lists, certificates of course attendance, etc.) of all work completed abroad. Upon submission of that documentation to the corresponding department at CC (in consultation with the International Studies Office and the Registrar), CC credit will then be awarded or denied.
