Eurotech In collaboration with the School of Engineering, the German Section offers Eurotech, a carefully structured five-year, double-degree program enabling students who have been admitted to the School of Engineering to earn both a B.A. in German and a B.S. in Engineering. The program includes German language courses specially designed to include engineering content, engineering courses partly taught in German, and a six-month internship in a German-speaking company. There is a special emphasis on environmental engineering and pollution prevention. Eurotech students may substitute GERM 3220, 3221, and 3222 for one of the courses in category 3 required of majors in German literature; and for one of the courses in category 2 required of majors in German Studies.
Education Abroad in Austria and Germany The University of Connecticut sponsors a variety of programs in Salzburg, Regensburg and a number of universities in the State of Baden-Württemberg that allow students to follow their own concentration and interests. Students also have the possibility of work-study programs and internships.
A minor in German is described in the “Minors” section.

Judaic Studies Based in the Department of Literatures, Cultures, and Languages and sponsored by the department’s Hebrew and Judaic Studies section, UConn’s major in Judaic Studies offers a unique interdisciplinary approach to the study of the languages, literatures, culture, history and religion of the Jews. Students are especially encouraged to pursue their interests in Jewish civilization by learning about the experience of the Jewish people within other cultures from ancient to modern times. This truly interdisciplinary approach, which allows students to include relevant courses offered by other sections of the department, is further enhanced by the many courses that are cross-listed with other departments and programs at the university.
All students are required to study Hebrew language. Fulfillment of this requirement depends upon the student’s area of interest. There are two Tracks, each with a distinct orientation: Track A, General Judaic Studies and Track B, Classical Judaic Studies. While both tracks provide grounding in all periods of Jewish civilization, Track B emphasizes the pre-modern experience and “classical” texts of the Jews.
Students in Track A are required to have two years of Modern Hebrew (or the equivalent, which would include credits from Israeli or other “ulpan” programs).
Students in Track B are required to complete the single year sequence of courses in Biblical Hebrew, which prepares the student to read Hebrew scripture in the original.
Students in Track A and B are required to take 24 credits beyond the required language preparation in their track as specified below.
Students who are majoring in other disciplines and may not be able to pursue Hebrew language proficiency but wish to obtain a solid grounding in Judaic civilization are encouraged to pursue a minor in Judaic Studies.
Track A: General Judaic Studies Prerequisites HEJS 1103, 1151, 1152, 1153, and 1154 (not included in 24 required credits).
Writing in the major requirement All students must take HEJS 3401W (included in 24 required credits). SOCI 2509W may be substituted for HEJS 3401W with the approval of the student’s HEJS advisor.
