About

University of Georgia's Comparative Literature is one of the expansive Comparative Literature Programs in a state university in the US today. It offers the standard courses of the discipline as well as a variety of Asian and African languages

Overview

The Comparative Literature (CMLT) Department of the University of Georgia offers a Master of Arts (M.A.) and a Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.). In both programs, students have the primary responsibility, in consultation with their Major Professor and other faculty members, to plan the courses and otherwise to fulfill the requirements for the degree. In doing so students will take courses in the CMLT Department and in various other departments, will read beyond the course requirements to obtain adequate background for their studies, and will conduct independent research in the writing of the thesis or dissertation.

We are one of the largest Comparative Literature departments in the world, with a full-time faculty of seventeen. We offer a series of courses in European literature from the Middle Ages to the present, as well as courses in the literatures of East and Central Europe, Africa, Southeast Asia, East Asia and South Asia. We also have regular offerings in literary theory and interdisciplinary studies, including courses in literature and cinema, East Asian cinema, literature and the visual arts, literature and music, and literature and science.

Programme Structure

  • We are also the home department of eight Asian and African language programs: Chinese, Japanese, Hindi, Korean, Vietnamese, Swahili, Yoruba and Zulu. Students in these programs develop their communication skills through regular interaction with native speakers, and they participate in various activities that enhance their understanding of the language’s cultural heritage.
  • The department also encourages international study by serving as the home department for Study Abroad programs in Avignon, Budapest and Tanzania, with a fourth program soon to be available in India.
  • At the graduate level, we award the degrees of MA and PhD in Comparative Literature. Graduate seminars are offered in the major periods and genres of European literature, as well as in the literatures of East and Central Europe, Africa, Southeast Asia, East Asia and South Asia.
