The Department of Germanic & Slavic Studies at the University of Georgia is now accepting applications for our graduate program for Fall 2021. Students may pursue a fully-funded, two-year M.A. in Germanic Studies, with a specialization in literature or linguistics; or a three-year M.A./M.A.T. (Master's in Teaching) dual degree with the UGA Mary Frances Early College of Education, which includes teacher certification. Both programs offer thesis and non-thesis options. As scholars, graduate students benefit from a wide range of courses in German literature, culture, and media studies, and German(ic) linguistics, with broad coverage from the Middle Ages through the 21st century; and from regular visiting scholars and artists, academic conferences, and guest lecturers. As teachers of German, incoming graduate students are integrated into our innovative faculty mentoring program, receive pedagogical training through both classroom instruction and first-hand experience. Graduate support includes a full tuition waiver, access to health care and student services, and an annual stipend (currently $15,000). Exchange partnerships with European institutions allow for additional funded study abroad opportunities, and our program also regularly hosts graduate exchange students from these same German partners.
