Interdisciplinary Concentration in Comparative Literature

  • Seven units, including:

    • One upper level English or Languages, Literatures, and Cultures course (approved by the Concentration Coordinator) which focuses on the comparative and/or interdisciplinary study of a particular genre, theme, or historical period.

    • Three upper-level literature courses from the languages, literatures, and cultures, Latin American, Latino, and Iberian Studies, or classical studies departments, in the original language

    • Two courses in fields outside of literature (Students will choose from ancillary fields such as philosophy, art history, religious studies, etc., in support of their research concentration, and subject to approval of concentration coordinator.)

    • A one unit independent study culminating in a substantial research project; honors students can use this research project as their honors thesis.
