Masters in Comparative Literature
The Comparative Literature program offers coordinated courses in literature, theory, criticism, aesthetics, and translation, including literatures in English-American, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, and Slavic languages, classical Greek, and Latin. Students take courses in the national and classical literature programs as well as in Comparative Literature. They may register for certificates in Film Studies, Medieval Studies, Renaissance Studies, and Women's Studies. Texts and contexts range from ancient times to the present. Because more than thirty professors are on the Comparative Literature doctoral faculty, seminars and tutorials taught within the program cover a rich variety of subjects and methodologies ranging from the visual arts, music, and theatre, to history, political science, anthropology, psychoanalysis, philosophy, philology, and other disciplines. Ph.D. degrees in Comparative Literature are offered with specializations in Italian, Classical Greek, and Latin. With their adviser's consent, students are also allowed to take courses through the Interuniversity Doctoral Consortium at Columbia University, Princeton University, New York University, New School University, Stony Brook University, Rutgers University, Teachers College, and Fordham University. The program also offers a master's degree in Comparative Literature.
