How to Become a Minor
All students are welcome to enroll in any course in the program unless prerequisites are stipulated. Students interested in learning more about the comparative literature minor are encouraged to speak with the undergraduate advising head for comparative literature. Keep in mind that three literature courses must be taken in a language other than English. Students are strongly encouraged to spend at least one semester abroad, preferably in a country whose primary language is not English.
Requirements for the MinorThe minor in comparative literature requires five courses, distributed as follows:
A. COML 100a (Comparing Literatures: Theory & Practice), to be taken as early as possible in the student's academic career.
B. Two upper-level literature courses (normally 100 or above) each taught in a language other than English.
C. Two comparative literature courses offered or cross-listed by Comparative Literature Program.
No more than two classes taken toward the minor can double count toward any other major or minor.
No course with a grade below a C- will count toward the minor; nor will a course taken pass/fail.
