Department of Germanic Studies

Students with knowledge of German must take a placement test before registering for a German course. Students with transfer credit are strongly encouraged to take a placement test. The lower-division placement test consists of the SAT Subject Test in German with a listening component, with additional questions from the Department of Germanic Studies. The student may earn credit through this examination for any German language course currently offered; the examination also helps the student and the adviser determine with which course the student should begin the study of German at the University. Credit for German 328, and 330C or 331L, may also be earned by special examination. Information about these tests is available from the departmental undergraduate adviser and from the Testing and Evaluation Services, 2616 Wichita.

A student with no knowledge of German may take any beginning German language course. Graduate students preparing for the doctoral reading examination may take German 380C.

Before enrolling for the first time in any other language offered in the Department of Germanic Studies, all students with knowledge of that language, however acquired, must be tested to determine the course for which they should register. Information about placement tests is available from the departmental undergraduate adviser.

The information in parentheses after a course number is the Texas Common Course Numbering (TCCN) designation. Only TCCN designations that are exact semester-hour equivalents of University courses are listed here. Additional TCCN information is given in Appendix A.
