Facilities Apart from the Stauffer Library, where most of the German library resources are housed, the graduate program is also served by a reference reading room and computer facility in Kingston Hall, where all the Modern Language departments are located.
Special Regulations
While research for theses must be done under the direction of the graduate program, credit for some graduate courses may be granted, with the permission of the graduate program, for equivalent courses taken at a recognized university in a German-speaking country.
Financial Assistance In addition to the fellowship and scholarship support available to graduate students, the program offers a number of teaching assistantships and tutorials to suitably qualified students.
Fields of Research

In accordance with the scholarly interests of individual staff members and the holdings of the Stauffer Library, the following main areas of research are recommended to graduate students: Sturm und Drang, Goethe, and Weimar Classicism (D.V. Pugh);  19th-century literature (C. Arndt); 20th-century literature (J. Hosek, J. Scott). Research in comparative literature and literary theory may be pursued in special circumstances and, where appropriate, in collaboration with other departments. All students should obtain more detailed advice on available resources for research from the Coordinator of Graduate Studies and/or individual staff members before deciding on their thesis topics. Theses should be styled in accordance with the latest MLA Style Manual.
