About

A German programme from University of Kent enables you to undertake a substantial piece of supervised research that makes an original contribution to knowledge and is worthy of publication.

Overview

A PhD, also known as a doctorate, is a requirement for a career as an academic or researcher. In addition, it has become a qualification valued by many employers who recognise the skills and commitment a PhD requires. Employers also recognise that a PhD indicates excellent research capabilities, discipline and communication skills.

Over the duration of the PhD, you produce an original piece of research of up to 100,000 words, in English or in German. Recent and ongoing research topics include German literature and mathematics from 1800 to the present, and the literary motif of wandering from Romanticism to the twentieth century.

Careers

A German programme from University of Kent shows you have advanced knowledge of the culture of Europe’s economically most significant country and opens employment possibilities in areas such as media, publishing and European administration. Previous graduates have gone on to work in these areas as well as using the qualification as a basis for entering higher-level positions in the public sector. A large number of MA graduates go on to doctoral studies, either at Kent or at other leading institutions in the UK or German-speaking world.

Programme Structure

Research areas:

  • The research culture is consciously conceived as interdisciplinary, through close links with the Centre for Modern European Literature (co-directed by German). Regular research seminars help to bring postgraduates together as a community, as well as to introduce them to visiting speakers from outside the University.
  • We can supervise postgraduate students in any of the areas listed in our staff research interests, as well as in other main fields of German and European literature. We encourage you to contact us to discuss your plans at an early stage of your application.
