Comparative Literature offered by the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign is an interdisciplinary field whose practitioners study literature and culture across national borders, across time periods, across languages, across genres, across boundaries between literature and the other arts (fine and applied arts, music, painting, dance, film, etc.), and across disciplines (philosophy, science, medicine, law, history, architecture, sociology, politics, and the like). Study Abroad and work in several languages and cultures and across disciplines is strongly encouraged.
A student who elects Comparative Literature as a major must complete 48 hours, including at least 12 hours in courses numbered 300 or above. Besides knowing English, the student who chooses the Comparative Literature concentration must have sufficient linguistic skill in at least one foreign language to participate in 200- to 400-level literature courses offered by the various foreign language and literature departments.
