About the Comparative Literature Undergraduate Minor Program
Comparative literature is designed for students who are interested in critical studies of literatures and cultures across national boundaries. The program provides a minor for the Bachelor of Arts degree. The minor consists of 18 hours of courses, 3 hours of which must be at the 4000 level. Six hours must be upper division. Students may apply 6 hours of sophomore-level coursework from either the Department of Classical and Modern Languages and Literatures or the Department of English if such coursework is not in the student’s major field. Students not majoring in a foreign language must complete at least 3 hours at the junior or senior level in a foreign language.
Individual minor programs are arranged by the student and the director of the comparative literature program. This minor may not include coursework in the student’s major field unless such coursework is over and above the minimum catalog requirements for the major.
