STIP: UBC Graduate Program, German Studies (31.12.22)

Kyle Frackman Discussion

The Department of Central, Eastern, and Northern European Studies (CENES) at UBC offers pathways of study to the M.A. and Ph.D. degrees. Our flexible graduate programs allow students to study a wide range of subjects within the field of Germanic Studies. The M.A. can be a standalone credential or preparation for doctoral study. The Ph.D. focuses on the development of expertise rooted in interdisciplinary research and teaching within Germanic Studies.

CENES houses a small, innovative, and energetic graduate program in Germanic Studies. Each year we welcome a group of students from diverse geographic, cultural, and educational backgrounds to embark on advanced discovery in the multilingual humanities. Our faculty collaborate with graduate students on projects ranging from media history to queer theory to Holocaust Studies to women’s literature and digital humanities.

The admissions application is now open at The deadline is December 31, 2022, for both Canadian and international applicants.

Mentorship, Guidance, and Professional Development

  • Professional Development and Robust Mentoring. Graduate students are encouraged to think holistically about their professional trajectory.
  • Research Guidance and Support. Our graduate students receive support to conduct research and present their work through grants and awards for travel to archives and conferences.
  • Ph.D. Co-op. Our Ph.D. students can participate in the Ph.D. Co-op Program, an enriched educational experience consisting of work terms during which students gain meaningful paid work experience.

Funding and Financial Aid

  • Sustainable Support. Funding is guaranteed for two years for M.A. students and four years for Ph.D. students. It is common in our department to also provide funding for fifth-year Ph.D. students.
  • Competitive Funding. Our Ph.D. funding packages are usually at least $30,000 per year (about $28,000 at the M.A. level). These packages are made up of stipends, teaching and research assistantships, scholarships, and international tuition awards.

The University of British Columbia and Vancouver

  • Excellent Research University. The University of British Columbia encourages bold thinking, curiosity, and initiative. We help our students reach their full potential.
  • Location. UBC is located on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territory of the Musqueam people in the beautiful, vibrant city of Vancouver.
