Willkommen!  Välkomna!


Our department features ten German and three Scandinavian specialists who collaborate fully in an intellectual enterprise focused on modernity. Our various sub-concentrations, which include philosophical and theoretical discourses, Holocaust and memory studies, film, visual culture, folk traditions, and German Shakespeare Studies, represent substantive links to other departments and programs, in particular Philosophy, History, Judaic Studies, Art History, Music, English, Comparative Literature, Folklore, and Cinema Studies.

With ample opportunity for study abroad, our 50 undergraduate majors pursue the B.A. with a focus in one of three areas: German Literature and Language; German Studies; Scandinavian. Language instruction covers German and Swedish.

Our innovative graduate curriculum is designed to provide M.A. and Ph.D. students with a firm grounding in modern (post-1750) German literature and to enable them to locate this literature within the context of modern European history and thought.
