Our department offers both a Major or Minor in Comparative Literature, and an M.A. or Ph.D. for students interested in advanced study.

The Literature Option offers a degree track within the Comparative Literature major that allows a specialization in the study of literature. It explores the relationships among different cultures and between literature and other fields of knowledge, both visual and verbal, such as art history, philosophy, religion, and political thought.
