Why do an MA or PhD in German at Waterloo?

Where to begin? There are so many reasons - active and engaged students, friendly faculty, interesting guest lectures, awesome library. But we'd like to draw your attention to three key features of our grad programs:

  1. We offer very strong programming in cultural studies - we cover literature, film, and theory across all periods and genres.
  2. We offer very strong programming in applied linguistics. Theory, second language acquisition, discourse analysis, computer-assisted language learning - we do it all.
  3. We offer excellent training for both academic and non-academic careers. With us you'll gain in-depth, guided experience in teaching language and culture courses, both in-class and online. But if you don't want to become a prof, we help you identify the skills you gain in graduate study and market them in other fields.

If you'd like to know more, please head over to our programs page. And if you've grown tired of watching cat videos on YouTube, why not watch our videos on research and the student experience instead? Or even the videos where the profs tell you about themselves?
