As you explore the ins and outs of literature, from antiquity to present, you will navigate its historical and geographical contexts, analyze examples of literary production and their linguistic and cultural diversity, and study recent movements in literary and critical theory. We believe that a solid base of knowledge, critical practice, and strong linguistic endeavor are essential to professional life and creative production, as we encourage you to acquire abilities and knowledge in three different language areas.
At the Comparative Literature program offered by The American University of Paris , you will be exposed to a flexible, interdisciplinary, student-centered curriculum through small, reading-and-writing-intensive seminars. You will also be encouraged to shape your thinking by exploring related work in other disciplines and to apply your critical thinking and analytic skills in a professional internship experience. Mentored by your Comparative Literature professors and your individual advisor, you will finish with a complete portfolio of your work, as well as a senior thesis in your final year.
