Our degree programs are intellectually demanding and prepare students for a challenging new world marked by media saturation and new demands on visual and textual literacy. Our majors gain the ability to communicate clearly, succinctly, and persuasively.
Students will learn how to critically engage texts of all sorts – novels, poems, films, television shows, video games, documentary – in a comparative manner and in a global context. Our interdisciplinary approach to the literary, visual, and cultural traditions explores connections across time, space, culture, religion, and different aesthetic modes.
A minor is available in Comparative Literature.
Students can pursue internship opportunities in the film industry for a maximum of five elective credits towards the major requirements (C LIT 491, 1-5 CR). Internship resources are also available here.
