The Department of German and Scandinavian offers a range of courses and degree programs, from instruction in beginning languages through the study of the literature and cultures of German-, Danish-, Finnish-, Swedish-, and Norwegian-speaking countries. The MA degree prepares students for teaching German language and culture up through the secondary-school level (in conjunction with teacher certification), while the PhD degree, as the highest degree in the field, is generally expected for an academic career involving both research and teaching. The graduate curriculum acquaints students with the history of German letters (with a primary focus on modernity since the enlightenment), places this history in a European context, and provides tools for a critical analysis of the literary, theoretical, and cinematic discourses involved. The program encourages comparative, theoretically oriented work.
