Apply Now

The new interdisciplinary major in World Literature offers you opportunities to explore your interests in regional literatures (Eastern Europe, Latin America, East Asia, West Africa, the Middle East) or national literatures (Chinese, French, Russian, Filipino, German, Italian, Arabic, Turkish) with more topical studies (genre, period, gender, ethnicity, indigenous critique, cultural studies, postcolonial studies). You will also learn about literary theory, criticism, and history.“World literature” is literature with an impact beyond its original language and cultural area. It is the product of intercultural historical events, and the circulation of ideas that connect people from across the globe. Combined with an intensive foreign language study, the degree program will provide in-depth insight into the literatures that live on in those languages.
