Minoring in World Literature

The World Literature minor introduces students to the study of literature and culture as a discipline, with emphasis on cross-cultural, transnational, and interdisciplinary practices. The Minor in World Literature is designed for students who are interested in literature beyond the boundaries of one national or linguistic tradition, as well as those particularly interested in non-Western literatures (which are currently taught primarily in translation). The Minor in World Literature is suitable for students majoring in any field, who are interested in reading literature; it is also a good complement to a major in English or in one of the foreign language departments, history, art and design, music, business, linguistics, anthropology, and the like.
