The department accepts transfer credits from German universities, or from international universities of similar standing as Rice, provided that the courses transferred are equivalent to those offered by the department. Requests for such study abroad transfer credit will be considered by the German Studies Program Director.
GERM 301 and GERM 302 may be replaced by an eight-week specially designed intensive summer course at the University of Leipzig. Students interested in applying for the Leipzig program should contact the German Studies Program Director as soon as possible.
For single majors, a maximum of four transfer courses can count toward the major. For double majors, a maximum of three transfer courses can count toward the major.
