About

The Graduate Program in Comparative Literature from Yale University invites students to the study and understanding of literature beyond linguistic or national boundaries. 

Overview

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. 

Learning outcomes

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.

Programme Structure

Courses included:

  • 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.
