The department offers three distinct options for obtaining a Master’s Degree in Comparative Literature. Find more information about these degrees, and consider your graduate study goals with our academic advisor.
Plan to meet the language requirements
While the department does not specify which foreign languages students should choose to fulfill their degree requirements, it recognizes that language proficiency is essential to scholarly work in Comparative Literature.
Consult with your mentors and other faculty members early in your graduate career in order to make an informed choice about which languages to study.
While you are encouraged to capitalize on previous training to expedite progress toward your degree, you should also consider which languages are likely to be most important for the research areas you intend to pursue, not only in the master’s project (where you will be expected to quote literary texts in the original language), but also in doctoral study.More about language requirements
