What Our Students Say

Vanessa Marques Pineda, Comparative Literature class of 2022

Vanessa Marques Pineda '22

I started out studying political science, then I changed to Comparative Literature. The moment I met with the program director, I knew it was for me. It was flexible, meaning I could focus on learning other languages, or doing a related discipline. My favorite part of Comparative Literature has definitely been the coursework and taking Spanish literature courses. In terms of job prospects, Comparative Literature has given me an edge because of the interests I have been able to pursue. Also, pursuing my interests has helped me better understand what I want to do in my career.
