German Studies MA by Research (On-Campus or by Distance Learning)

Course Description

We offer promising German Studies candidates the opportunity to carry out research in one of the leading centres in the country for language, literature, history and culture.

Germanists working here are part of a stimulating research culture within the Department of Modern Languages, and also benefit from special links to the DAAD-supported multidisciplinary Institute for German Studies. Between us we are able to offer an exceptionally wide range of expertise, and hence supervision opportunities, ranging from the medieval period to the present day, and from traditional literary analysis to cutting-edge interdisciplinary approaches.

The MA by Research programme requires you to prepare a dissertation of up to 40,000 words on a topic of your choice, for which an academic staff member will provide expert supervision.

The PhD – the most advanced research degree – leads to a dissertation of up to 80,000 words on a subject of your choice and under the expert supervision of an academic member of staff.
