Comparative Literature at the University of California, Davis, provides students the opportunity to create an individual program tailored to their unique interests and goals. Individually supervised instruction and specially designed qualifying exams permit students to pursue their interests in depth and with great flexibility. The department offers both a Ph.D. and a two-year, thesis-based M.A. program. Ph.D. students study three literatures in the original languages and have the option of being examined on a special topic of their own choosing instead of their third literature. The M.A. program combines core courses on the theory and practice of comparison with broad opportunities for work in specific languages and literatures.
