German & Scandinavian Studies at the UMass Amherst is proud of our tradition as a distinguished center of research and teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Our strengths are in interdisciplinary literary and cultural studies, including Film Studies, Turkish German Studies, Theater and Performance Studies, Gender and Sexuality Studies, Black German Studies, Minority Studies, Transnationalism, Medieval Studies, German-Jewish Studies, Holocaust Studies, GDR Studies, Cultural History, and STEM German.
Our undergraduate program is structured to set the study of the Germanic languages and their literatures within the contexts of their respective cultures, including their historical, economic, political, philosophical, and cultural aspects. Strong interdisciplinary ties with other departments are encouraged, including STEM fields.
iSTEP combines students' interests in German and STEM fields. With iSTEP students can take STEM-German language courses and participate in international education opportunities.
