Double Majoring - English and German at UCI
PROGRAM OF STUDY
Students fulfill the requirements for the English major.
Students also fulfill the requirements for the German major. In addition to completing the German 1ABC and 2ABC sequences,* the typical German major will take ES 10 and ES 11, 6 upper-division courses taught in German, and 4 upper-division courses taught in English, two of which can also fulfill the upper-division requirements for the English major.**
Students must complete the Humanities Core Course or the Humanities Core Course Alternative, most of which overlap with lower division writing and Gen. Ed. IV requirements.
In order to complete the double major in 4 years, you need to plan ahead, so consult your advisor right away to develop a course plan.
* Students with high school German or other experience with the language may place into German 2 or straight into upper-division, dependent on experience, years of instruction, and/or placement by UCI placement exam.
** Students double majoring in English and German complete the requirements of both majors, but they are allowed to double count two courses. Such courses could include two German 150 courses. The summer pre-ILP (Intensive Language Program) in Berlin counts as 10 quarter units and the ILP counts as 8 quarter units toward the B.A.
Study abroad options through UCEAP include full-year immersion, summer, spring, fall-winter, and winter-spring programs in Berlin at the Free University, the Humboldt University, and the Technical University.
Internships are also available to students who request this option in advance and engage in the necessary preparation and planning. The internship program involves participation in Study Abroad in fall and winter in Berlin, and then an internship in the spring and summer of the junior year.
