PhD Fellowships Available in German Studies at Stanford University

The Department of German Studies at Stanford University welcomes applications to our Ph.D. program from students interested in working in German Studies, and comparatively across languages and disciplines. Students with a BA or MA in any field are eligible to apply. If accepted to the German Studies Ph.D. program, a PhD student receives six years of guaranteed funding to support the completion of the PhD. Graduate students also receive generous allowances for materials, conference attendance, and research support.

Core faculty in German Studies represent a broad spectrum of approaches to literature and culture, including Medieval and Early Modern Studies, German-Jewish Studies, Digital Humanities, gender, literary theory, media theory and theater. The many affiliated faculty in other departments working on German culture, history, performance, politics, media, and art are also a valuable resource for graduate student wanting to work across disciplines or within a more broadly conceived German Studies model.

The intellectual climate at Stanford is characterized by its vibrancy, its innovative programs, and its emphasis on achieving the highest standard in research and teaching. Stanford is regularly voted the top university in the world in the humanities. Research workshops across the humanities ensure interdisciplinarity and within German Studies specifically, we foster our own intellectual community by hosting a graduate colloquium, a lecture series, and various workshops.

Graduate students at Stanford also receive excellent training in second language and literature teaching. They have the opportunity to teach core courses in language and literature, as well as develop and teach courses on topics of their choice.
