*If a student takes more than typical load of 4 courses while abroad and thus wishes to reduce the number of courses taken on campus by 1, it is recommended that the student do so by taking only 1 of the 2 May term courses listed above.
B) Beginning German in the fall term of the first year with summer study abroad:
In this last pattern, eleven courses that meet major requirements are listed. Since the major only requires 9 courses above 1034, students have considerable flexibility in that they can choose not to enroll in a German course during two of their campus terms. If a student chooses to do a semester rather than a summer program in Germany, this will further reduce by one or two the number of on-campus German courses required. It is important to note, however, that study abroad is required to complete a German Studies major. Thus, taking the 9 campus courses beyond 1034 listed above does not meet the requirements for a major. These nine campus courses are insufficient on another count as well, i.e. the list of campus courses does not include 5 3000-level courses or above, which is also a requirement for the major.
