MA in Germanic Studies

Students have the opportunity to develop a comprehensive knowledge of German literary texts in their aesthetic, social, political, (inter-)cultural, and historical dimensions. They will learn how to apply a variety of critical methods and theories to the study of literary texts, refine literary sensibilities, analytical skills and conceptual abilities. The Master’s program is intended as preparation for a career in teaching and provides a possible foundation for advancement to a PhD program in Germanic Studies.

Students also have the option of proceeding directly to the PhD program after only one year of our M.A. program in Germanic Studies (without completion) if they obtain first-class marks, demonstrate advanced research potential, and if the other requirements for PhD admission, as outlined in the Academic Calendar, are met.

Master of Arts

The program of study intended as preparation for a career in teaching and/or research in German literature and provides a possible foundation for doctoral study in Germanic Studies.

As the emphasis of the M.A. is on the study of literature and literary historiography, students have the opportunity to: develop comprehensive knowledge and critical judgment of German literary history; acquire an understanding of literary texts in their aesthetic, social, political, (inter)cultural, and historical dimensions; apply a variety of critical methods and theories to the study of literary texts; and refine literary sensibilities, analytical skills, and conceptual abilities.

Program Requirements

There are two options for the M.A.:
1. The Thesis Option requires a 9-credit thesis, 9 credits of obligatory courses, and 12 credits of additional coursework excluding the extended research paper. At least 24 credits must be at the 500-level or above.
2. The Course-based Option requires 30 credits of coursework, including GERM 548. At least 24 credits must be at the 500-level or above.

The graduate program in German welcomes high quality, motivated students seeking a graduate degree with an interdisciplinary focus. We believe that German is studied often most productively with interdisciplinary, international or intercultural goals in mind. To study German here in North America means looking in from the outside. To study German in the 21st century means linking it to issues and concerns relevant to other cultures, languages, histories and modes of thinking. We encourage research in German in conjunction with, for example:
-Education
-English
-Film
-Fine Arts
-French
-History
-Linguistics
-Music
-Philosophy
-Spanish

M.A. students in our department have ample research and teaching opportunities. They receive training in second language teaching and the teaching of culture and literature. They also have the opportunity to develop their research skills by working on the many and varied research projects of faculty members. Members of the department work in close connection with the recently established Language Research Centre, and this collaboration provides many exciting research opportunities for graduate students in the areas of second language acquisition and pedagogy.

If you are interested in connecting German with other fields and disciplines; if you are thinking about teaching and research – the MA program in German might be for you.
