The ability to communicate in more than one language has become a prized skill in the global marketplace. The foreign language minor prepares students for this changing marketplace. The German minor is designed for students interested in the German language and German-speaking cultures. Students will develop reading, writing, speaking, and listening skills in German and be prepared to use the German language in their field of interest upon graduation. The minor requires 18 hours of German classes.
For information on foreign language credit by examination through CLEP, the International Baccalaureate Program or the Defense Language Institute, see the GRU Admissions page: http://www.gru.edu/admissions/.
