The Department of German and Russian at UVM offers a small but excellent graduate program in German leading to the M.A. degree. It is one of the few German M.A. programs available in the Northeastern United States, and generally draws students from Vermont, New Hampshire, and New York, but attracts students from other areas as well.
All major areas of German literature and philology from the Middle Ages to the present are covered, and we are particularly strong in the Age of Goethe and Romanticism, the 19th and 20th centuries, German Folklore, Proverbs, Exile Literature, and Austrian Literature. A thesis is required for completion of the M.A. degree in German.
The requirements for admission to graduate studies in German in the Department of German and Russian are: an undergraduate degree in German, including a year course in German literature and a year course in advanced composition and conversation, or the equivalent. Also required are satisfactory scores on the Graduate Record Examination general (aptitude) section.
