What Our Students Say

Nina Jones, Comparative Literature and Studio Art, class of 2022

Nina Jones '22

As an aspiring graphic novelist, I felt it was necessary to study literature in order to learn about storytelling in an academic setting. I chose Comparative Literature as my second major because it allows me to do that across a wide variety of media, rather than strictly texts, and also lets me pursue my passions for language and art history. It is a flexible and dynamic course of study that enriched both my art practice and worldview. The advisors and professors were very helpful in integrating my Comp Lit curricula with my primary Studio Art major, which is demanding at times.
