The Graduate Certificate Program in German Cultural Studies

The Graduate Certificate Program in German Cultural Studies enables graduate students who are working on degrees in the Humanities and Social Sciences to acquire advanced language proficiency to carry out their research and to engage in interdisciplinary studies. Graduate work in German cultural studies with faculty from a wide array of interdisciplinary fields (German Studies, but also Anthropology, Art History, English, Cinema, Comparative Literature, Judaic Studies, Philosophy, and Sociology) can make an important contribution to students’ scholarly careers.

The program invites applications from graduate students who have been admitted to one of the fields listed above, who have at least intermediate level competence in German, and who are committed to building proficiency in the language and to expanding their conceptual and methodological approaches to research.

Upon completion of the program, students will be awarded a Graduate Certificate of German Cultural Studies.
