Please note the Kaffeestunde originally scheduled for Wednesday, April 20, has been canceled.


What was Dada? Why is Goethe's "Faust" so important? What was the relationship between "Bauhaus" and the Nazi regime? What is the "New German cinema?" Who were the German Expressionists? Was Kafka Czech or German? These and many more questions are addressed in courses in German language and literature at Brandeis.

We offer students the unique opportunity to study the German language in its cultural context, with strong emphasis on literature, film, and cultural history. Students are encouraged to study abroad and participate in the many cocurricular offerings by the Center for German and European Studies.
