PART OF THE MEDIA, ARTS, AND EXPRESSION FLIGHT PATH

Minor: Comparative Literature
(COLT)

Comparative Literature is an innovative and interdisciplinary field of study. We consider the power of cultural expression while working across and beyond traditional natural, linguistic and disciplinary boundaries to generate new knowledge. Our program of study is anchored in thoughtful, engaged and ethical practices of reading, viewing, analysis, discussion and writing as we situate the books, poems, films, performances, and works of media and visual culture we examine in local, global, and planetary frames. The Comparative Literature minor offers an opportunity for students to pursue an interest in world literature and film without advanced language study.
