Graduate Programs in German-speaking Countries

Throughout the German-speaking world there are thousands of graduate programs, many of which are taught in English. All of these programs require little or no tuition, thus offering a much more affordable option to M.A. programs in the U.S.  Emory students have successfully attended these graduate programs, often securing funding from the DAAD, and then they either stayed in Europe or came back to the United States for work.
