to critical theory and a progressive understanding of the discipline. Examining the ways in which the humanities have engaged with socio-political and ethical concerns in a contemporary world, our interdisciplinary and progressive perspective generates new and exciting scholarship. A clear emphasis on language and linguistics allows for thinking through the temporalities and nuances of addressing the fundamental questions concerning the study of the humanities. Our programs provide qualified students with the framework necessary for studying not only a broad range of literatures, but also other arts and the pursuit of translation studies or interdisciplinary studies.
The department offers three avenues of graduate study with Master of Arts (MA) and doctorate options. It features, in addition to its primary MA and PhD programs in comparative literature, an MA in translation studies, a unique interdisciplinary doctoral program in philosophy, literature, and the theory of criticism, as well as a PhD in translation studies through the internationally recognized Translation Research and Instruction Program (TRIP). Students seeking entry into any of these degree programs must be able to do graduate-level work in one or more foreign languages and must make substantial use of the foreign languages they command while completing coursework.
