German

Long the language of some of the world’s greatest minds—philosophers, scientists, authors—German has become the language of business throughout the European Union. Even better, since it exists on the same branch of the linguistic family tree as English, German shares many words with its cousin, making the Teutonic tongue easier to learn than most. Many doors are opened by learning this important language.

Make those hours count

Make those hours count

If you took German in high school or have otherwise acquired a proficiency in the language, you may take a placement test to determine the appropriate course to take. After successfully completing that course, you will receive credit for all lower-numbered courses—meaning that you might earn three to twelve course hours. The placement test is given during Customs Sessions for entering freshmen and at the beginning of the fall and spring semesters. The test is computerized and can be taken on a walk-in basis until the end of the registration/drop-add period. No grade is assigned for credit earned through advanced placement.

A fair exchange

A fair exchange

For more than a quarter of a century, MTSU’s German program has conducted an exchange program with the Germersheim branch of Johannes-Gutenberg Universität, which specializes in the study of foreign languages and the training of language teachers, interpreters, and translators. Each year, MTSU is able to send four students to Germersheim for the entire academic year, or the equivalent. (Two students who participate for only one semester count as only one of the four available positions.)

Germany is the European Union’s #1 economy and the world’s second-largest exporter. When you speak German, you’re speaking the language of business for much of the industrialized world, which in turn means job opportunities abound for the focused, fluent speaker.

The major in Foreign Languages has three concentrations—French, German, and Spanish—and leads to either the Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) or Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree. Minors are offered in French, German, Spanish, and Japanese. Courses in Arabic, Chinese, Hebrew, Italian, Kurdish, Latin, Portuguese, and Russian are available.

Interdisciplinary minors coordinated through the Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures include Classical Studies, Early Modern European Studies, Latin American Studies, Linguistic Studies, and Portuguese Studies.

Students in German can study abroad for a semester or a full year at Johannes-Gutenberg Universität. Living with a host family allows immersion in the culture and improvement in communication skills.

Students wishing to teach in elementary and secondary schools need to seek licensure in a foreign language. This requires the equivalent of a major in that language (Spanish, French, or German); FL4500 Introduction to Teaching a Foreign Language; and a minor in Education.

Graduate students may pursue a Master of Arts in Teaching (M.A.T).

An academic map is a suggested four-year schedule of courses based on degree requirements in the undergraduate catalog. This sample schedule serves as a general guideline to help build a full schedule each term. Milestones, courses, and special requirements necessary for timely progress to complete a major are designated to keep you on track to graduate in four years. Missing milestones could delay your program. 

This map based on the 2013-2014 undergraduate catalog is not a substitute for academic advisement - contact your advisor if you have any questions about scheduling or about your degree requirements. Also see the current undergraduate catalog (catalog.mtsu.edu) for a complete list of requirements and electives.Note: Requirements are continually under revision, and there is no guarantee they will not be changed or revoked; contact the department and/or program area for current information. 

You may choose to attend a summer term to reduce your load during fall or spring terms but still stay on track to graduate in four years (see below). NOTE: Learning Support courses will alter the sequences on this map.
