Graduate Certificate in Critical Theory

Graduate Certificate in Critical Theory: Goethe University of Franfkurt am Main exchange program

In conjunction with the Exchange Program, we have introduced an optional variation on the already existing Graduate Certificate in Critical Theory: the Graduate Certificate in Critical Theory (Goethe University of Frankfurt am Main Exchange Program). 

5 courses are currently required for the existing NU Graduate Certificate in Critical Theory.  To complete the  “Graduate Certificate in Critical Theory (Goethe University of Frankfurt am Main exchange program)”, two of the five courses will be completed through work undertaken at the Goethe University of Frankfurt am Main. The student will

  1. undertake the work required for one MA course at U Frankfurt (with graded paper), and 
  2. participate for one semester in the doctoral colloquium of the student’s sponsoring professor at Goethe University of Frankfurt am Main (or that of an appropriate colleague there) including the presentation of a paper on his or her doctoral research at one session of this forum.

The remaining 3 courses will be completed at Northwestern.
