The Graduate Program in German Studies offers graduate courses in German literature, culture, and applied linguistics leading to the M.A. and Ph.D. degrees. Interdisciplinary studies, e.g., with Human Rights (Human Rights Certificate), Comparative Literary and Cultural Studies, Linguistics, Women’s Studies, are available in cooperation with other programs. All plans of study, whether for the M.A. or Ph.D., are created to suit the needs and interests of the individual student/degree candidate.

The graduate program strongly supports interdisciplinary, intercultural, and transnational approaches to German Literary and Cultural Studies, including trans-disciplinary literary and cultural theory, “interkulturelle Germanistik,” and anthropological and socio-historical inquiries into literary studies. The UConn graduate program is unique in offering to interested graduate students the option of the Graduate Human Rights Certificate or the Graduate Women’s Studies Certificate alongside the graduate degree in German Studies or German Literature. and

The expertise of our faculty covers the entire modern spectrum from German Classicism and Romanticism via Modernism and Holocaust Studies to East/West German literature and culture and “Gegenwartsliteratur” by German-speaking authors of different national, cultural, and ethnic backgrounds. Additional interests represented in our program are: Black German Studies, Gender Studies, Film and Media Studies, Digital Humanities, German-Jewish Studies, and Literature/Culture and Philosophy. In general, faculty members are experts in particular theories and periods, beginning with the eighteenth century, but all have subfields and venture into interdisciplinary territory. Most importantly, every faculty member is eager to explore new and innovative questions together with graduate students!

With more than 100 undergraduate German majors, German Studies at UConn has a rigorous language and pedagogy program. All faculty members participate in an integrated approach to cultural and linguistic inquiry, and all are involved in the articulation of the entire curriculum. Teaching assistants become familiar with language teaching research and methodologies, with particular emphasis on teaching towards intercultural and linguistic competence, beginning with elementary German language and culture classes.

Entry requirements: B.A. or (international) equivalent for M.A. studies; M.A. or (international) equivalent for Ph.D. studies.

Stipends: At least approx. $15,000+ per year (two semesters) for Teaching or Research Assistants for the duration of the M.A. program (3-4 semesters) or Ph.D. program (5 years). The tuition of more than $30,000 is waived.

Application deadlines: January 10 to begin graduate studies in August (Fall); July 20 to begin graduate studies in January (Spring).
