For First Year Students: Placing Into Courses

Students considering taking a German language course are required to contact the department’s Language Coordinator, Dr. Sigrit Schutz. Placement in language courses is determined in consultation with the respective instructors on the basis of a student’s language skills.  AP results are considered in this conversation but are not always, in our experience, adequate indicators of the appropriate placement. German Department courses offered in English are open to all students, regardless of levels of background or proficiency in German.
