Courses

The faculty has approval to offer the following courses in the academic years 2000-2001 and 2001-2002; however, not all courses are taught each semester or summer session. Students should consult the Course Schedule to determine which courses and topics will be offered during a particular semester or summer session. The Course Schedule may also reflect changes that have been made to the courses listed here since this catalog was printed.

A full explanation of course numbers is given in General Information. In brief, the first digit of a course number indicates the semester hour value of the course. The second and third digits indicate the rank of the course: if they are 01 through 19, the course is of lower-division rank; if 20 through 79, of upper-division rank; if 80 through 99, of graduate rank.

Department of Germanic Studies

Students with knowledge of German but no college credit in 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 II: German with Listening test, with additional questions from the Department of Germanic Studies. The student may earn credit through this examination for German 506, 507, 312K, and 312L; 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 356 may also be earned by special examination. Information about these tests is available from the departmental undergraduate adviser and from the Measurement and Evaluation Center, 2616 Wichita. Students with transfer credit or credit by examination for German 506 normally take German 508K.

A student with no knowledge of German may take either German 506 or the intensive course, German 604; German 604 may be followed by either 612, the sequence 312K and 312L, or the sequence 312K and 310. For qualified students, an intensive sequence consisting of German 507R, 312R, and 312S is offered in the spring; an accelerated sequence, German 506F, 507F, and 412F, is offered in the summer session. Graduate students preparing for the doctoral reading examination may take German 301 and 305.

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.
