The Graduate Program in Germanic Studies at The University of Texas at Austin invites you to find out more about graduate study by coming (virtually) to Austin to experience “Graduate School for a Day” on November 16, 2021.

Due to the ongoing pandemic, the event will be held online via Zoom.

During the event, participants will have the opportunity to sit in on graduate courses, meet with faculty and graduate students, and take a virtual tour of the campus.

Each year the Department of Germanic Studies at the University of Texas at Austin welcomes applications from candidates interested in pursuing graduate studies in German culture, foreign language pedagogy, linguistics, film, or literature. The University of Texas at Austin offers outstanding research opportunities with a first-rate library and the Department hosts the Texas-German Dialect Project ( Our faculty members are internationally recognized for their scholarship and numerous courses in other departments at the University also relate to the core fields of German Studies. Our graduate students regularly present papers at international and national conferences, publish scholarly articles, and win fellowships for study and research as well as teaching awards. Participation in our teaching mission is a crucial part of our graduate program. Beyond teaching in our lower-division language sequence, advanced graduate students may also be able to teach self-designed courses in English. We also have an established reputation for placing our alumni into both academic and non-academic positions.

Graduate students accepted into our program typically receive five years of financial support in the form of fellowships or teaching positions. Funded students also receive tuition assistance and health insurance benefits. We hope to be able to provide outstanding candidates with additional financial support.
