Germanic and Slavic Studies

In Germanic and Slavic studies, you’ll study language, culture and history. You’ll learn academic and professional skills that will let you live and work abroad. You’ll attend field schools and take international practicums. You’ll examine all aspects of culture, from film and literature to language and folklore. We use dynamic learning that encourages intellectual curiosity and critical thinking.

Our Master’s degree comes in three distinct streams: Germanic, Slavic, and our new Holocaust focus.
