TitelPh.D. program: Germanic and Slavic Languages | Vanderbilt University
BeschreibungThe German department at Vanderbilt University in Nashville invites applications to its Ph.D. program for the academic year 2016-17. Doctoral students at Vanderbilt receive five years of full funding to carry out course work, conceptualize, research, and write their dissertations, teach at various levels of instruction from beginning language to advance literature and culture classes, prepare for future careers as teachers, scholars, and professionals, and participate in a variety of interdisciplinary programs across campus.

The German department’s faculty offers a wide range of scholarly expertise with a special focus on literary modernism and the aesthetic avant-garde, gender studies, film history and new media aesthetics, the relation of philosophy and history, the history of the book, and contemporary literature and culture. Internationally recognized scholars in history, musicology, philosophy, and Jewish Studies add to the vibrant fabric of German Studies on campus and situate Vanderbilt as a unique place to pursue innovative approaches and meet the shifting tasks of doctoral education in the Humanities in the present. Doctoral candidates at Vanderbilt enjoy extensive mentoring to refine their skills as scholars and teachers and position them for successful futures within and beyond the academy. As a result, we have a strong record of graduate placements in a competitive academic and alternative-academic job market.

Application materials include: statement of purpose, transcripts, three letters of recommendations; GRE Scores; evidence of proficiency in English and German; academic writing samples. The application deadline is January 15, 2016. We specifically encourage applications from international students with various cultural and linguistic backgrounds who are eager to engage German Studies in North America as a springboard for inventive types of learning, discovery, scholarship, teaching, and collaboration.
