About the programme

The Comparative Literature major offers students broad and rigorous knowledge of literature from antiquity to the present in its historical and geographic contexts. The Major fosters close analysis of the details of literary production and well-informed attention to linguistic as well as cultural diversity and to recent movements in literary and critical theory. Students will not only have the opportunity to join a vibrant community of scholars, critics and writers, but also apply their critical sills in a professional internship experience.

Students are encouraged to study three different language areas. Mentored by the department's faculty and their individual advisor, students develop and articulate a personal focus for their reading, which issues in a portfolio of work and a senior thesis in the final year.
