University Majors

University of California, Davis
Comparative Literature A.B.

Students explore culture and society through literary texts, and in some cases film and critical theory, in a cross-cultural context. Courses include texts from different literary traditions in English translation, sometimes focusing on material from a particular region such as Asia, Europe, the Americas, Africa, the Middle East or South and Southeast Asia, and sometimes including texts from more than one of these regions. Courses may focus on a genre or historical period or a theme such as the city in literature, animals in literature, or gender in literature. Majors take courses in comparative literature as well as courses in a language other than English and electives that can be from comparative literature or a national literature department. Comparative Literature majors gain skills in cross-cultural analysis, writing, and one language other than English--a combination that is sure to be an asset for prospective employers and postgraduate programs of study in a variety of careers.
