TitelPromotionsstipendien, Columbia University
BeschreibungFor fall 2015, the Department of Germanic Languages & Literatures at Columbia University offers

up to four doctoral fellowships (Ph.D.)

in the field of German literature and culture. Columbia’s department is one of the leading programs in the U.S. and Canada. The course of study incorporates a strong literary and theoretical component with additional strength in media studies and cultural history. The program has a historical focus of roughly 1700 to the present and a flexible emphasis on theory and methodology. Students are encouraged to combine their study of literature, literary theory, and intellectual history with coursework and research beyond the department. Comparative and cross-disciplinary work can be pursued in conjunction with Columbia’s other graduate programs and numerous specialized institutes. The department has strong ties with the Institute for Comparative Literature and Society, the Institute for Research on Women and Gender, the Departments of Art History and Anthropology, and the Friedrich Schlegel Graduate School at the FU Berlin. The small number of graduate students allows for intensive mentoring. All advanced seminars are taught in German.

With its unique cultural offerings, vast library system, museums, and vibrant cultural life, New York is an ideal place to study German literature and culture in a transnational context.

The fellowship offers five years of full financial support, including tuition fees and health insurance. Training and practice in language instruction and pedagogy are an important part of the fellowship.

Submitted documents should include: Online application form; three recommendations; transcripts of courses taken; degree diplomas (or official letter confirming date of degree); Curriculum vitae; statement of purpose and of plans for further study; 20 page writing sample; results of the TOEFL-test.
