Summary

The German MLitt comprises taught and research-based elements, allowing you to focus in depth on one aspect of German studies. Our research interests cover all aspects of German culture, literature and language from medieval to modern times.

You will normally work on a research project which comprises two to four research assignments and a longer dissertation. Your supervisor will be an expert in your chosen field, and will receive support if necessary from an experienced research supervisor. The programme is well suited as preparation for PhD research.

Our research staff work in a diverse range of fields from sociocultural, historical and political studies, to film and literature, linguistics and sociolinguistics. The School has strong links with interdisciplinary research centres and groups, including:

Centre for Latin American and Caribbean Studies
Centre for Research in Linguistics and Language Sciences
Research Centre in Film and Digital Media
Gender Research Group
Medieval and Early Modern Studies
Postcolonial Research Group.
