BeschreibungDepartment of European Languages and Studies, German Section

The graduate program in German at the University of California, Irvine, offers both the M.A. degree and the Ph.D. through a rigorous course of study in the texts and ideas from the early modern period to the present that are fundamental to understanding our contemporary world. Through its participation in a Department of European Languages and Studies, the program offers a transnational perspective along with a strong focus on critical theory, both in its faculty and through its ties to the UCI Critical Theory Emphasis and the Critical Theory Institute. The German graduate program also encourages students to participate in a variety of additional graduate emphases, including Visual Studies, Feminist Studies, and Comparative Literature. In addition, the department trains students in the theory and practice of second-language acquisition, applied linguistics, and teaching, emphasizing translingual and transcultural competence.

Fellowship Support
Due to recent changes in university policies, the German Ph.D. program now offers both domestic and international students five-year funding packages that include both tuition and a yearly stipend of $21,000 per year, as well as access to student housing. Up to two of these years are fellowship years with no teaching responsibilities. In the other years, students gain experience teaching in a variety of courses, including language, literature, and UCI’s Humanities Core Course.

Job Placement
The Ph.D. program has a very strong placement record, with alumni at a range of research universities, liberal arts colleges, and non-academic positions. Students receive professional development opportunities to pursue a variety of career options, working with faculty in presenting at national and international conferences, organizing conferences, developing textbooks, and managing the development of the undergraduate programs.

Applications for students beginning in Fall 2015 are due by January 15, 2015.
