This course is designed to create a cultural/historical frame of reference for students by introducing students to representative works of prose, poetry, theatre, music, art and architecture from several critical "German" cultural epochs from the medieval age through 1900. In addition, students will explore the historical, political, religious and other social forces, which provide context to better understand the cultural value and legacy of these crucial time periods. The language of instruction is German, with differentiated assignments by level. MGRMN 4200 meets with MGRMN 3200, with differentiated assignment lengths and expectations by level.
