Comparative Literature

The graduate programs in Comparative Literature offer you considerable freedom in designing your course of study as you explore such broad-ranging issues as problems of representation, the intersections among race, class, and gender, performance studies, literature and human rights, postcolonial and diaspora studies, music and word relations, and film studies. You’ll work closely with core faculty and fellow peers as you work together toward winning research awards, earning distinguished teaching prizes, and securing tenure-track positions and non-academic jobs in translation and international diplomacy.
