The program has a strong interdisciplinary focus and students are expected to work with departmental faculty as well as with faculty in related fields, such as comparative literature, theater, history, art history, modern culture and media and political science. The program will train flexible and innovative scholars able to address varying teaching and research needs in the future job market. We particularly target advanced students who would come to Brown with a strong background in at least one of the program's key disciplines (literature, language, culture, theater, social sciences).
