REQUIREMENTS FOR THE MAJOR
The program in comparative literature allows students to combine courses from several literature departments into a coherent program not limited to one language or national tradition. The pre-requisite for the major is a two-semester survey of European literature, CPLT 2010-2020. Comparative literature majors must take a minimum of two upper division courses in each of two different literature departments. At least two of these courses must include readings in one original language other than English. The remaining literature courses must include at least one seminar at 400-level or above and a course in literary theory (CPLT 3510, ENCR 3000, or approved equivalent). Students must consult with an advisor in the comparative literature program to determine the suitability of their elective courses. The total number of credits required for the major, beyond the pre-requisites, is 27.
