|Field of Study:
||With faculty members working at the forefront of literary, media and cultural studies, the Department of Languages, Literatures, and Cultures - German Studies immerses students both in the rich literary traditions of German-language literature and in the innovative directions of transdisciplinary research. With our multiple major, minor, honors and joint honors programs, we can accommodate a broad range of student interests from 18th-century Enlightenment to questions of migration and multiculturalism in contemporary German culture. While our department offers a wide spectrum of courses in language, literature and culture, our particular strengths lie in philosophy, critical theory, cultural studies, philology, cinema and media studies. Students in our department receive close attention and individual mentoring in both their academic and professional training. We also consider German Studies to be part of a broader humanistic endeavor and encourage students to draw on the wealth of faculty working on relevant topics both at McGill and the many other Montreal universities in departments and programs such as History, Philosophy, Music, Art History and Communications, Jewish Studies, English, and other national literatures.
