The German program provides a variety of courses for students interested in German language, linguistics, literature, history, philosophy, music and art.

Admission and Grade Requirements

To be admitted to minor status in German, students must have an overall GPA of C+ (2.3). The minimum grade acceptable in any course applied to a German minor is a C (2.0). The GPA in all courses applied to a German minor at UC Denver must be 2.5. No courses taken on a pass/fail basis may be credited toward a German minor.

Residency Requirement

The German minor requires 15 semester hours of upper-division course work. A minimum of 6 semester hours must be taken from German faculty at the Downtown Campus. Courses taken at other institutions while a student is enrolled at UC Denver may be applied to the minor only with departmental approval before enrollment in those courses.

Students who have completed course work through an approved exchange program must also complete a residency requirement of a minimum of 6 credits of upper-division German courses. This residency requirement must include at least 3 semester hours of language skills courses at the Downtown Campus.

Students taking a German course taught in English must complete a portion of the course work (e.g., papers and exams) in German for the course to count toward the minor.
