About

The Comparative Literature and Cultural Studies program at The University of New Mexico is an international, translinguistic, and transdisciplinary major offering a B.A., a B.A. second major, a minor, and both an M.A. and a graduate minor. 

Overview

Opportunities

The Comparative Literature and Cultural Studies program at The University of New Mexico fosters intellectually engaged, self-motivated, and creative thinkers who are willing to take risks and pursue unexpected and critically sophisticated projects. 

Students in the program design their field of study based on the broad array of courses in languages and cultures offered by Comparative Literature and Cultural Studies as well as Foreign Languages and Literatures, in which CL/CS is housed. 

Further, with a legitimate intellectual rationale provided by the student (with the help of the major adviser), virtually any course might be considered as part of the major. In addition, B.A. students may choose from two concentrations, the cultural studies concentration and the comparative literature concentration. 

M.A. students may choose a concentration in cultural studies, comparative literature or classics.

Programme Structure

Courses include:

  • The Introduction to World Cultures and Critical Theory
  • Cultures and Literatures
