Literatures in German

The German Section concentrates its teaching and research on German literature and culture from the eighteenth century to the present, and cuts across traditional national and disciplinary boundaries. Students with a primary concentration in German combine seminars and directed research to address the fields, issues, and interpretive approaches in which they have the greatest interest. By drawing upon the faculty of the Department of Literature as a whole, as well as other departments across campus, students can extend their work--if they so choose--into film, theory, theatre, philosophy, or social history. The freedom enjoyed by students working in German at UCSD permits them to develop an interdisciplinary course of study geared to the future of teaching and research in the broad field of German Studies.
