Exploring cross-disciplinary study of language, literature, and culture

German Studies

We are a community of students, teachers, and scholars devoted to the cross-disciplinary study of language, literature, and culture within a transnational framework. Working in an environment that fosters cooperation and the pleasure of discovery, our programs include courses in German and English on subjects ranging from medieval to contemporary literature and from film and visual culture to philosophy, music, and postcolonial studies.
