Ph.D Program

Princeton’s graduate program in German has long been recognized as one of the leading programs of German studies. We offer our students the chance to participate in an intense intellectual community and to study with scholars who work in contemporary interdisciplinary and theoretical approaches to German culture as well as in the full range and depth of the German literary tradition.

The Graduate Handbook, which can be downloaded here, supplements the departmental statement in the Graduate School Announcement and offers prospective students an overview of the program and the opportunities it provides.
