About

Students in the Comparative Studies program at The Ohio State University develop strong skills in analytical and critical thinking and in written and spoken communication. Students broaden their understanding of cultural differences as they attend to the intersections of gender, ethnicity, race and class. 

Overview

The cross-cultural and interdisciplinary field of comparative studies provides students the opportunity for critical analysis of social and cultural processes and their expression in religion, literature, media, the arts, science and technology.

Possible careers

Students majoring in Comparative Studies at The Ohio State University develop strong skills in analytical and critical thinking and in written and spoken communication. These skills are essential to many positions in both the public and private sector: government; local, national and international service organizations; business and industry; and all levels of education. Comparative studies students also develop their understanding of cultural differences as they attend to the intersections of gender, ethnicity, race and class. In an increasingly diverse nation and interconnected world, employers have come to value this important area of expertise. 

Graduates have further pursued a wide range of academic fields—including religious studies, cultural studies, English, history and American studies—at some of the best graduate schools in the nation such as at the University of Minnesota, the University of Maryland, the University of Wisconsin, Ohio State, Harvard, Princeton, Yale, the University of Chicago and many others. 

Many graduates of the program choose to attend professional schools and pursue law, medical, teaching or social work degrees. 

Whether moving immediately to a graduate or professional school, finding a rewarding job in the public or private sector, or taking a few years off to travel or to serve in the Peace Corps or other organizations, comparative studies students are well prepared to make their way in the diverse and complicated world they will inherit.
