The Graduate Program in German at Georgetown University invites applications to its Master’s and PhD programs for the academic year 2022/23

Deadline: January 15, 2022

The Graduate Program in German is ideally positioned to respond to the challenges in the profession and to the changing role of the humanities. Many of our program features reflect the recommendations of the MLA report on Doctoral Education.

  • Georgetown offers a rigorous academic program that responds to the broadening career goals of graduate students. We are committed to preparing PhD and MA students for the highest level of scholarship in research and teaching.
  • Drawing on the broad range of expertise of the faculty at Georgetown, the graduate program provides an excellent foundation of German literature and culture and fosters interdisciplinary approaches to more specialized areas of inquiry, including: contemporary literature and culture, issues of gender and sexuality, digital humanities/media studies, curriculum development, and literacy studies.
  • All students, irrespective of their area of concentration, receive extensive preparation for teaching and are involved in various aspects of curriculum development and assessment.
  • Our commitment to individual mentoring and to generous year-round financial support makes completion of the MA degree in two years and the PhD in five years not only desirable but also financially and academically feasible.

Application materials include: Statement of Purpose; copies of official transcripts (all prior institutions); three letters of recommendation; academic writing samples in English and German (two samples total); TOEFL scores (for applicants not holding a degree from an English-language institution).
