BA in German, Scandinavian, Dutch

The German, Scandinavian, Dutch (GSD) major offers students the flexibility to combine coursework in any of the languages and literatures of the department or to designate a German emphasis or a Scandinavian and Finnish emphasis.

Students working toward the major take a common core of courses that focus on intellectual tools important in the 21st century. The major emphasizes the development of advanced linguistic and transcultural competence, together with openness to interdisciplinary and global thinking. All majors complete a capstone course.

To declare a GSD major, contact our Director of Undergraduate Studies.

Students in colleges other than CLA may complete a major in German, Scandinavian, Dutch without having to fulfill the additional requirements for a BA degree.
