Degrees Offered:

M.A., Ph.D.

Format: Hybrid

Program Description:

In Germany, Austria, Switzerland and many other European countries, it is a strongly held conviction that a doctorate demonstrates intellectual independence, superior research and writing skills, the perseverance and ingenuity to complete an original piece of scholarship and deep familiarity with a different culture. These qualities are equally valuable in the twenty­first century American economy, and indeed in the global marketplace.

The interdisciplinary PhD program in German at CU­Boulder provides intensive and personalized mentoring, directed reading advice and clinics devoted to dissertation and conference­paper writing, digital and archival research, oral presentation and interview preparation. The program strongly emphasizes interdisciplinary work within a secondary concentration area of the student's choice, and includes one year spent abroad at CU-Boulder's partner universities of Göttingen and Regensburg or at other leading institutions in the German­speaking world. A wide range of graduate­level course offerings is designed to ensure content coverage and to move research projects into publishable scholarship. The expanded graduate faculty includes scholars in disciplines such as political science, comparative literature, Jewish studies, business and library science.
