We challenge our students to engage with the theory, interpretation, and criticism of literature from across the globe and to explore its interactions with adjacent fields like visual and material culture, linguistics, film and media studies, psychology, law, philosophy and history.
The Literature department at Yale University encourages students to develop their skill at textual analysis while challenging them to reflect theoretically on the acts of writing and reading, as on the connections between literature and other realms of human experience. It is home four doctoral degree programs: a degree in Comparative Literature, as well as joint degrees with Classics, Film and Media Studies and Renaissance Studies.
- The current graduate students, who come from over fifteen different countries, work in over twenty languages from all over the world and pursued a variety of innovative research projects.
