Since studying Comparative Literature is a highly individualized endeavor -- no two students speak or read the same languages, or are interested in the same creative or conceptual challenges, or choose the same combination of required and elective courses -- the importance of faculty advising within the program cannot be overstated. Students meet frequently with the undergraduate director as well as other Comp Lit teachers to define and revise their own pathways through the curriculum. From the initial moment of declaring a major (or minor) to the capstone workshop in which seniors develop their own projects, close faculty supervision is one of Comp Lit's defining hallmarks. While our program thinks globally about literature and culture, we are small enough to know you by name.
