The Minor in Comparative Literature offers an opportunity to study texts in a manner that transcends national and linguistic boundaries. It enables students to develop, through their majors, a solid grounding in one particular tradition (e.g., English, Spanish, French) or one discipline (e.g., history, music) while also embracing a broader perspective through the minor. A student minoring in comparative literature may wish to pursue graduate work in comparative literature or in a specific national literary tradition or to pursue a career in translation, teaching, publishing, or writing. The Minor in Comparative Literature fosters the sophistication appropriate to a liberal arts degree.
