The German Studies program at Michigan State University offers both the MA and the PhD, and both degree programs provide a solid grounding in the core disciplinary areas of literature, culture, and language studies in a unique course of study that integrates digital humanities approaches into coursework, teaching, and research opportunities. The faculty members in our program embrace an integrated vision of language and cultural studies that prepares students for careers in academia and beyond. Our close-knit program ensures that students receive personalized mentoring in teaching and research as well as in exploring various career options.

The German faculty members are recognized nationally and internationally for their scholarship, and students benefit from the faculty’s active involvement with interdisciplinary programs across campus, including Digital Humanities, Second Language Studies, Global Studies, Jewish Studies, Gender Studies, and more.
