TitelGraduate Program in Germanic Studies, University of Texas at Austin
BeschreibungThe Department of Germanic Studies at the University of Texas at Austin is currently accepting applications from candidates to pursue graduate studies in German culture (including literature and film); foreign language pedagogy and applied linguistics; and theoretical linguistics. Our faculty members are affiliated with graduate programs in related fields, including Comparative Literature, Foreign Language Education, and Linguistics, and are internationally recognized for their scholarship. The strengths of our program lie mainly in nineteenth- and twentieth-century literature and culture, and applied and theoretical linguistics. The department currently hosts the editorial offices of German Studies Review (the journal of the German Studies Association), edited by Professor Sabine Hake; and the Texas German Dialect Project, directed by Professor Hans C. Boas.

The University of Texas at Austin offers outstanding research opportunities with a first-rate university library, and the Department of Germanic Studies encourages students to take advantage of these opportunities. We offer a broad range of courses on topics like “The Modern Metropolis,” “Reading in the Second Language," “Language Contact and Language Death in Texas,” and “Body and Biopolitics," as well as classes in Danish, Dutch, Swedish, Norwegian, Yiddish, and various older Germanic languages. Our graduate students regularly present papers at international and national conferences, publish articles in scholarly journals, and win fellowships for study and research, as well as teaching awards. We have also been successful at placing our alumni into academic and non-academic positions.

We offer financial support for graduate studies for a maximum of five years. Funding includes fellowships, positions as assistant instructors, graduate research assistants (both currently $8,354 per semester), or teaching assistants (currently $6,708 per semester), tuition assistance, and health insurance benefits. We will be able to provide outstanding candidates with additional financial support. Participation in our teaching mission is a crucial part of our graduate program, and we therefore strive to give all of our graduate students the opportunity to teach in our lower-division language sequence. Advanced graduate students may also be able to develop and teach their own courses.

Applicants should have a B.A. or M.A. in German or related field (e.g. Comparative Literature, Linguistics, etc.), a good command of German and English, a good academic record, a dedication to scholarly research, and an interest in teaching German or other Germanic languages as a foreign language.
