Future students

We offer a small, well-designed 2-year MA program in Germanic and Slavic Studies, Germanic stream. Students benefit from seminar-sized classes, a newly-designed set of foundation courses, and a dual focus on academic and professionalization skills in the discipline.

Above all else, the aim of our program is to foster critical thinking and intellectual curiosity among our students. We are committed to maintaining a vibrant program that engages students to analyze, synthesize, and ultimately present important components of Germanic Studies, including cultural studies, literary and film studies, as well as applied linguistics. 

We supervised thesis projects on Germanic literature, cultural history, second-language acquisition and film. Check our faculty research interests. This may help you to identify your potential graduate supervisor among our Graduate faculty members.
