Comparative Literature

Comparative Literature differs from other literature concentrations largely through its international focus and broad-gauged view of art and culture in which the study of languages is combined with the analysis of literature and literary theory. The undergraduate programs for concentration in Comparative Literature enable students to study literature in cross-cultural perspectives.

There are three concentration tracks in Comparative Literature, as follows:

Track 1: Concentration in Comparative Literature with two languages

Track 2: Concentration in Comparative Literature with three languages

Track 3: Concentration in Literary Translation

For additional information, please visit the Comparative Literature website ( or see the Concentration Advisor, Professor Stephanie Merrim.
