Students in the program must satisfy all requirements of both the Bachelor's and Master's degrees; there is no double-counting of courses. In order to complete the program in five years, students are expected to complete at least a quarter of the graduate courses required for the Master's degree before earning the Bachelor's. For the German Master's program, students are advised to complete a minimum of two graduate courses (8 credits) towards the Master's degree while still undergraduates.
If you are an admitted Bachelor's/Master's student who will begin graduate coursework in the fall or spring semester, we advise you to take one or more of the following courses, if offered: GERM-GA 1115 (Origins of German Critical Thought I), GERM-GA 1116 (Origins of German Critical Thought II), and GERM-GA 2703 (Poetics and Theory Seminar).
Admitted students, as well as those with questions about graduate course selection or sequencing should contact the Director of Graduate Studies for advisement.
