Overview

Master of Arts - German Studies

The graduate program in the Department of Languages, Literatures, and Cultures - German Studies at McGill University combines the rigor of traditional philological inquiry into the history of German literature.

It also brings a broader cultural studies approach that attends to the historical and mediological aspects of German intellectual history. 

Particular emphasis is placed on the way media technologies – film, photography, the physical form of the book – influence, interact with, and inflect this textual tradition. 

In bringing together research on both the semiotic and material aspects of literary and intellectual history, the department encourages students to engage with a range of theoretical and methodological approaches to formulating their own coherent interdisciplinary research programs.

Students enrolled in the M.A. with non-thesis option complete nine 3-credit courses and three research papers. 

This program is geared toward students who may or may not plan to do a Ph.D. in German and therefore do not necessarily need to undertake a major research project but would like to acquire a broad basis of courses in German culture and media. 

Non-thesis M.A. students have pursued various careers inside and outside the academy.
