Ours is widely recognized as one of the most distinguished graduate programs in Germanic Studies in the United States. Talented and ambitious students choose to come to us from all parts of the world.
Our graduate students combine training as generalists with various specializations from our program and beyond. In addition to the core faculty members in Germanic Studies, we have a large network of adjunct professors in many departments and programs.
Our M.A. and Ph.D. students receive stipends and fellowships of $22,000-$26,000 (or more) per year, plus health insurance and full remission of tuition and fees.
Recent recipients of the Ph.D. in Germanic Studies have found employment as faculty at institutions such as Auburn University, the University of Toronto, Cornell University, and the University of Tampere (Finland).
