Programme description

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.

Recent PhD projects supervised in the department include studies on:

  • Early 20th-century German Design
  • The Ottoman Armenians in German Literature and Journalism
  • Melusine figures in Theodor Fontane
  • Space and Time in Kleist and Hoffmann
  • Disability in Contemporary German Women's Writing
  • Holocaust Education
  • Gertrud Kolmar
  • Turkish-German Literature and Film
  • Gender and Sexuality in Contemporary German Culture
  • Architecture and Dictatorship
  • Turkish German Cinema
  • Cosmopolitanism and Contemporary Muslim German Writers

Fees

For entry in the academic year beginning September 2019, the tuition fees are as follows:

  • MPhil (full-time)
    UK/EU students (per annum): £4,327
    International students (per annum): £18,500
  • MPhil (part-time)
    UK/EU students (per annum): £2,163

Please note for the majority of projects where experimentation requires further resource: higher fee bands (where quoted) will be charged rather than the base rate for supervision, administration and computational costs. The fees quoted above will be fully inclusive and, therefore, you will not be required to pay any additional bench fees or administration costs.

All fees for entry will be subject to yearly review and incremental rises per annum are also likely over the duration of the course for UK/EU students (fees are typically fixed for International students, for the course duration at the year of entry). For general fees information please visit: postgraduate fees . Always contact the department if you are unsure which fee applies to your project.
