TitelGraduate study, University of Oregon
BeschreibungGraduate Study (M.A. or Ph.D.) at the University of Oregon (Eugene, OR), Teaching Fellowship and possibilities for additional certifications in Non Profit Management, Women and Gender Studies, and Translation Studies. We support German Graduate Studies and if desired training in Alternative Careers.

The Department of German and Scandinavian at the University of Oregon invites applications for graduate study. Students holding a B.A. (or currently completing it) may apply either to the 2-year M.A. program or, if they are intending to go all the way to the Ph.D., they may apply directly for admission to the Ph.D. program (three years of graded coursework plus dissertation). Students who are admitted to the Ph.D. program with an M.A. in hand complete a year of graded coursework plus dissertation. We offer two years of full support to candidates in the M.A. program on Graduate Teaching Fellowships, and a minimum of three years (with a M.A.) and five years (with a B.A.) in the Ph.D. program. The priority application deadline for admission in Fall 2016 is January 15, 2016; applications submitted after that date will be considered for any remaining spots.

As one of the leading German Departments in the Western United States our department features nine German and three Scandinavian specialists, who collaborate fully in an intellectual enterprise focused on modernity. The research and teaching interests of our faculty cover a wide range of subfields within the broad area of German (and Scandinavian) literature and culture from the 18th to the 21st centuries. These subfields include especially the periods of Enlightenment and Romanticism, the later nineteenth century, Modernism, and—strengthened by recent additions to the faculty—post-1945 literature, and Cinema and Media Theory. (

Our various sub-concentrations, which include philosophical and theoretical discourses, Holocaust- and memory-studies, film, visual culture, folk traditions and German Shakespeare Studies, provide ample opportunity to collaborate with faculty in other departments and programs on campus who are active in German Studies, in particular Philosophy, History, Judaic Studies, Art History, Music, English, Comparative Literature, Folklore and Cinema Studies. We organize a yearly German Studies conference with invited speakers from across the U.S. and beyond that is dedicated to a specific theme; recent topics have been “What Is A Thing?,” “Defining the Human and the Animal,” “Kierkegaard and German Thought,” and “Abstraction and Materiality.” Many of the conference contributions are published in special issues of the electronic journal Konturen that is housed in our Department. (

Students in the Ph.D. program have the option of concurrently obtaining an additional graduate certificate or specialization to further enhance their professional profile; among available options, the university currently offers certificates in Women and Gender Studies and Nonprofit Management, and a graduate specialization in Translation Studies.(

We offer students small and intimate settings in our graduate seminars, personal attention to all academic endeavors, and the opportunity to teach a variety of their own classes, including lower- and upper-division language courses, leading discussion sections of larger lecture courses, and, where possible, a literature/culture course of their own design. Our graduate teaching fellows receive thorough hands-on training in the pedagogies and philosophies of foreign language teaching. Students accepted to the program are eligible for a Graduate Teaching Fellowship that covers tuition and health insurance and includes a stipend for living expenses.

The Pacific Coast, the Cascade Mountains, the Oregon Shakespeare Festival and the Oregon Bach Festival (Eugene) are among the natural and cultural amenities that make the University of Oregon and the Eugene area an agreeable setting in which to study the literatures and languages of the German-speaking and Nordic countries.
