ACADEMIC MAP (Effective Summer 2017 and after)

This map is a term-by-term sample course schedule. The milestones listed to the right of each term are designed to keep you on course to graduate in four years. The Sample Schedule serves as a general guideline to help you build a full schedule each term. The Liberal Studies and Elective courses must be selected to satisfy all area, literature, lab, Gordon Rule, and multicultural requirements unless your program meets these requirements with major courses. Milestones are courses and special requirements necessary for timely progress to complete a major. Missing milestones will result in one of two types of map registration stops. The first level (Degree Map Off-track) is placed following grade posting if the student has missed a milestone (course and/or GPA) for the first time in the major. If a student is in non-compliance with milestones for two (2) consecutive semesters (excluding summers), a Major Change Required stop is placed on the student's registration.

The German major requires thirty (30) semester hours numbered above 2999, including GER 3400 and GER 3500. For students entering the major from GER 2220, GER 3400 is required to fulfill the composition component; students who enter with advanced proficiency take GER 4420. Students should consult with an advisor to ensure proper placement. Students should have a minimum of six semester hours of skills courses (e.g., GER 3310, GER 3400) and six semester hours of literature, film, and culture classes (e.g., GER 3500, GER 3930). A minimum of nine semester hours must be taken at the 4000 level. A maximum of six semester hours from among the following coursework may count toward the thirty semester hour requirement: GET 3130, GET 3524, FOL3930. Majors must complete 12-18 hours for a minor. All courses taken to fulfill the 30 hours of major course work must be taken for a letter grade. A grade of C minus or better must be earned in each course applied toward any major or minor degree earned in the department.

Placement tests are available only for French, German and Spanish. If you are placed above a milestone, it is important that you continue with the next milestone in its place. Students with any language proficiency must consult an advisor in the Department of Modern Languages for proper course placement. Total hours above 120 vary based on language proficiency level of student.
