Description:The MA degree in Germanic Languages and Literatures is offered in two fields: German Literature, Culture and Theory, and Yiddish Studies.

The course-based, one-year MA program normally spans two sessions. Students have the option to concurrently enrol one of the collaborative specializations at U of T, such as Women and Gender Studies, Jewish Studies, Transnational and Diaspora Studies, or Book History and Print Culture. This also requires registration in their respective core course(s). The MA in German is a full-time program, but may also be taken part-time under extenuating circumstances. Graduates may continue on to doctoral studies as well as embarking on careers in translation, language teaching, literary editing, cultural programing, and corporate and administrative positions requiring advanced communication and analytical skills.
