Welcome to the website of the MSU German Studies program! The German faculty embrace an inclusive model of German Studies that integrates the study of language, literature, and culture at all levels. We offer degrees at all levels: the undergraduate major and minor, the MA and the PhD.

Building on a tradition reaching back over 50 years, the German program has distinguished itself with its responsiveness to the changing face of German Studies in the US. The MSU German faculty is nationally recognized for contributions in the fields of literary, cultural, linguistic, and pedagogical scholarship. In 2013, our program was recognized as an AATG German Center of Excellence for its innovative approach to both undergraduate and graduate curricula.
