Course summary

Our MPhil German Studies programme will enable you to undertake a piece of original research under the supervision of our academics. Our understanding of German Studies is multiple and interdisciplinary, with a particular emphasis on culture and history from 1800 to the present day. From the cultural history of Imperial Germany to contemporary Turkish-German culture, migration studies and cosmopolitanism, from Culture and Dictatorship, German-Jewish studies and Holocaust film to the history of translation, our research explores the interface between politics, culture and identity in the modern German-speaking world across and beyond its national boundaries.

The MPhil is suitable for students who wish to undertake original research over a shorter period than the PhD. It involves one year of full-time study or two years of part-time study. A satisfactory MPhil topic is one that a suitably qualified and properly supervised student can bring to completion within the permitted timeframe. Many graduates in German Studies have embarked on successful university careers at Edinburgh, London, Manchester, Glasgow and other institutions. Some have moved into publishing, while others have taken up posts in international research projects or dictionary projects.
