Department of German & Comparative Literature

The Department of German allows students in the program of Comparative Literary Studies to explore the literature, culture, history, and language of the German-speaking world. In addition, The Department of German provides a thorough introduction to critical theory through a structured, interdepartmental curriculum. Critical theory is encountered frequently in the study of politics and philosophy and has become an integral part of literary theory and cultural analysis. It entails reflection on the premises, concepts and categories used in different disciplines such as literary studies, history, political science, and film studies, to name a few.
