The Centre of German Studies at Jawaharlal Nehru University is among the first departments to offer separate degrees in Literature, Translation, and Translation/Interpretation. Translation studies and intensive courses in interpretation are among the strengths of our Centre. 


Within this German Studies program at Jawaharlal Nehru University, we also offer a range of common courses, which seek to consolidate and supplement what students learn in their respective specializations. 

Keeping in mind possible avenues that open up before students, and the choices they may seek to make, courses in didactics of the German language as well as literature are offered. Another strength of the program are the courses in the cultural and political history of key periods in the history of German speaking countries as well as on the location of Germany within the European Union. 

Key Features 

  • In continuation of introductory courses in the final year of the BA program, the common courses include also an introduction to contrastive linguistics. New courses in culture studies, including folklore studies are also offered. 
  • Over the third and fourth semester of the MA, students are expected to write a dissertation on an area of their choice.

  • Theories of Literature
