Joint PhD in Transcultural German Studies
By fostering transcultural competence and professional excellence across the Atlantic, the Arizona-Leipzig PhD / D. Phil. Program offers interdisciplinary doctoral training in two challenging academic environments, while providing intensive mentoring opportunities and comprehensive financial support.
The Arizona-Leipzig Transcultural German Studies Doctoral Program is housed on two campuses, one in Leipzig, Germany and one in Tucson, Arizona. Incoming US-based students complete one year of doctoral coursework at the University of Arizona and a second year at the University of Leipzig, while financially supported through teaching and research fellowships. Students who begin their doctoral studies in Leipzig pursue their second year of doctoral course work at the University of Arizona, where they teach alongside their US-based colleagues in the German Studies Department. Students complete their third year of coursework at their home institution.
Prospective students are asked to apply both to the Graduate College (at apply.grad.arizona.edu) as well as to the German Studies Department, via the Director of Graduate Studies, Prof. David Gramling, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Inquiries via Prof. Gramling are welcome at 520.822.6251. International applications are due by December 1. Domestic applications are due by February 1.
