Germanic Studies is a large department with many opportunities and concentrations. We offer full sequences of language courses in Dutch, German, Norwegian, and Yiddish. We teach reading courses in Old Norse, Gothic, Old Saxon, as well as Old High and Middle High German. Our faculty has expertise in a large variety of areas, ranging from philology and linguistics to intellectual history and from language pedagogy to modern Europe.
Our department is one of the leaders in the field. The most recent National Research Council (NRC) ranking placed our graduate program among the top three German departments in the nation.
