The Department of Modern and Classical Languages, Literatures, and Cultures, German Division offers a program of study leading to the degree of Masters of Arts in German. The department has particular strength in the Age of Goethe, the Wilhelmine, Jahrhundertwende, and Weimar eras, contemporary literature and film, literary theory, intellectual history, gender studies, and foreign language pedagogy.
Concurrent degree programs are also available which combine, for example, a graduate degree in diplomacy or in library science with the M.A. in German Studies. We also have an exchange program with both the University of Heidelberg and the PH Ludwigsburg.
A primary goal of our M.A. program is to combine an intellectually stimulating course of studies with a nurturing environment. To achieve this goal, the UK German program has instituted an innovative mentoring program for incoming teaching assistants. The Kentucky Foreign Language Conference allows graduate students to be part of the oldest continuing foreign language conference in the United States.
NEW: We are happy to announce that a program leading to the Masters of Arts in Teaching World Languages (MATWL) has just been approved. Please contact the Director of Graduate Studies, Prof. Linda Worley (email@example.com / (859) 257 1198), for detailed information.
