GERMAN 232 - Second-Year Course
Section: 201 Introduction to German Film
Term: SU 2010
Subject: German (GERMAN)
Department: LSA Germanic Languages & Literatures
Course Note:
In this course, students complete the four-term introductory language sequence by selecting one of several "special topics" courses intended as an introduction to the study of an academic discipline, such as Music, Politics and Society, Film, or Science, in German. Students should emerge from the course prepared and motivated to do work (or read for pleasure) in German in this field throughout their academic career and beyond. Students are strongly encouraged to arrange their schedules so they can enroll in the section whose topic interests them the most, in order to get the maximum benefit from this course. Interest in the course content is the most effective motivation for language study, and students can emerge from 232 with genuine pride in what they are able to do with their German. More generally, students should be ready by the end of the course to pursue an internship or study abroad in Germany, and are strongly encouraged to take advantage of the assistance offered by the German department and by the Office of International Programs in this regard.
