The M.A. in German requires two academic years and is designed to prepare students for doctoral work in German or to provide career enhancement for fields such as international business or law, media and communications, and library science.
The M.A. in German with Teaching Certification,, requiring two academic years plus one summer, is offered in conjunction with the Education Department and is designed to prepare highly qualified secondary school teachers.
All students can choose to study one year at the Eberhard-Karls-Universität in Tübingen, Germany, and one year on the Tufts campus; or they may spend both years on the Tufts campus in Medford. The Tufts resident director in Tübingen offers an informal colloquium to acquaint students with traditional and contemporary aspects of German cultural life and assists students in planning a program of study that draws upon university lecture courses and seminars. On the Tufts campus students do regular course work, participate in a graduate colloquium, and serve as teaching and research assistants.
The master's programs in German typically enroll a small number of highly motivated and talented students who, together with faculty both on the Tufts campus and in Tübingen, form a supportive, stimulating, and congenial community that helps all students realize their full potential.
