    For students who have knowledge of a language other than English and are interested in studying literature within cultural, socioeconomic, historical, and political context, Comparative Literature offers stimulating coursework and a useful B.A. As a major Comparative Literature provides a flexible, multicultural and interdisciplinary general education by allowing students to take courses in four different departments.

    Comparative Literature gives students the intellectual tools to analyze literature, the arts and culture from a variety of psychological and philosophical perspectives and it prepares them for careers in areas such as law, business, publishing, or teaching.
