The general goal of graduate work in German is to provide students with a critical understanding of German culture, its language and literature and its relationship to western civilization as a whole. Specific courses are designed to acquaint students with the aims and methods of research in the fields of language pedagogy, literary and cultural history, literary theory, and historical linguistics. Students working as teaching assistants under faculty supervision have ample opportunity to develop effective teaching skills in a controlled setting.
The Department of Modern and Classical Languages, Literatures and Cultures offers a graduate program leading to the M.A. (Plan A or B) degree in German. Competence in another foreign language, normally French, in addition to German is required for graduate degrees.
