Graduate Students

Our programs leading to the MA and PhD degree in German offer a supportive environment for students looking to engage in the critical analysis of literary, theoretical, and cinematic discourses focused on post-Enlightenment modernity. We encourage comparative, theoretically oriented work: Students may fold the study of Nordic traditions into their coursework and research, or explore any of our strong links to other departments and programs, including Comparative Literature, Philosophy, History, Judaic Studies, Art History, Music, English, Folklore and Public Culture, and Cinema Studies.

Our graduate cohort is compact enough to ensure that every student benefits from individual mentoring and career preparation, and large enough to support an ambitious, well-balanced curriculum.
