Minor in Comparative Literature

Seven courses with a grade of C or higher are required. Internships taken on Study Abroad programs may not be credited toward a minor in comparative literature.

  1. Two “Introduction to Comparative Literature” courses chosen from CAS XL 222, 223, 224, and 225. These may be taken in any order. CAS CC 101 and 102 together may be substituted for CAS XL 222.
  2. Two interrelated courses in a single non-English literature: in modern languages, CAS L_ 350 and one other, L_ 351 or above; or in ancient Greek or Latin, CAS CL 212 or CAS CL 262 and one other CL course at the 300 level and above with readings in Latin or Greek (courses principally on history, religion, or other mostly nonliterary aspects of ancient culture do not qualify).
  3. Either two comparative literature courses numbered CAS XL 300 or higher (XL 401 and 402 are excluded; CAS CC 201 and 202 together may be substituted for an XL 300-level course); or two interrelated courses in another literature, chosen from one of the following: two courses in English-language literature numbered CAS EN 363 or above; or two courses in a single literature in modern languages or romance studies, read in the original language or in English translation; or two courses in either Latin or ancient Greek literature (courses principally on history, religion, or other mostly nonliterary aspects of ancient culture do not qualify) numbered CAS CL 212 or higher, read in the original language or in English translation. If a student’s first literature (under item 2 above) is Latin, the second may not be Greek, and vice versa.
  4. CAS XL 479, the senior seminar.
