Course summary

This course is based in the School of Language, Literature, Music and Visual Culture, our research programmes in German are distinguished for research on:

  • Modern and contemporary German and Austrian studies
  • Post-war memory cultures in Austria and Germany
  • German and Austrian cinema from the early 20th century until the present day
  • Ecocritical and comparative approaches to German literature from the Romantic period to the present.

We have long-standing links with other programmes, particularly English, Film and Visual Culture, History and Politics.

Recent graduates of the Department have found careers in management, translating and interpreting, publishing, the academic world and television.

Please note that part-time study is not available for resident international students. The PhD may be conducted, full-time or part-time, by distance learning, which carries no residency requirement.

The PhD at the University of Aberdeen is a research degree. Research degrees are defined by the student’s own research proposal, on which the student will write a thesis. Research students read on their own research topic and work closely with their supervisors to define their research and write a thesis. They also attend regular research seminars, are provided with opportunities to attend conferences and for some postgraduates, there are opportunities to gain undergraduate teaching experience.
