Bowling Green’s M.A. Program in German
The BGSU M.A. in German is a two-year program in which you spend the first year of graduate study at the University of Salzburg in Austria and the second at Bowling Green State University in Ohio.
The program offers you three different possibilities for pursuing your research interests.
Literary and Cultural Studies Track: You can pursue a wide variety of literary and cultural topics in German. Comparative approaches and the development of specialized research interests are encouraged. This track can serve as an ideal preparation for further studies (Ph.D. programs) in the humanities, for a wide variety of professions and government positions that demand cultural expertise, or as preparation for teaching German at the college and high-school level.
Language and Teaching Track: You will focus on linguistic and pedagogical topics, and acquire teaching experience and assist professors with their work. This track is ideal for perfecting your language skills; it will prepare you for the teaching profession or for work with businesses that have strong ties to German-speaking countries.
Dual Degree Track: You can pursue a dual M.A. degree in German and Political Science, History, Music History, or another field (such as a second language, English, art, etc.). This track is an ideal preparation for further studies in both fields, for business and government positions that demand cultural, historical, and/or political expertise, and also for teaching more than one subject at the college or high-school level.
