German MLitt

Course Description

Course Overview

The German MLitt comprises taught and research-based elements, allowing you to focus in depth on one aspect of German studies. Our research interests cover all aspects of German culture, literature and language from medieval to modern times.

We offer expert supervision in the following areas: 20th century German and Contemporary literature; GDR literature and censorship; Representations of the Holocaust and/or World War II; Literature and philosophy - cultural and critical theory; Women's writing; Medieval German and Comparative Literature; Morphological theory - morphology, phonology and dialectology of German and Dutch.

Your supervisor will be an expert in your chosen field, and will receive support if necessary from an experienced research supervisor. The programme is well suited as preparation for PhD research.

The School has strong links with interdisciplinary research centres and groups, including: Centre for Latin American and Caribbean Studies; Centre for Research in Linguistics and Language Sciences; Research Centre in Film and Digital Media; Gender Research Group; Medieval and Early Modern Studies; Postcolonial Research Group.
