Comparative Literature

Undergraduate courses in Comparative Literature are normally comparative in scope, including literature from at least two languages, and taught in English. In addition to taking courses in Comparative Literature, undergraduates typically complete three years of study in the foreign language of their choice. A number of students in Comparative Literature select German as their primary foreign language, and German is one of the literary traditions featured in Comparative Literature courses. Hence many students elect to double major in German and Comparative Literature or to major in one and minor in the other.
