Program Information

The Institute of German Studies provides graduate students with a flexible curriculum to pursue study and research in the society and cultural production of German-speaking Europe from 1740 to the present. Most work on this subject unfolds through consideration of diverse critical paradigms, including those in current American culture studies. Study in the institute is linked closely, but not exclusively, to the master's degree in modern German culture in the Department of Germanic Studies and is also open to students from related disciplines (e.g., West European Studies, History, Political Science, Philosophy, the Program in Cultural Studies, the Jewish Studies Program, and the School of Music). The institute also offers a Ph.D. minor. Courses are taught by the faculty of the Department of Germanic Studies specializing in 1740 to the present and by instructors in the above-mentioned related disciplines.
