Florida Atlantic University's Comparative Literature is a graduate program of study for the Master of Arts, available to majors in British, French, German, Italian, Peninsular Spanish, Latin American or United States literatures.


Key facts

Florida Atlantic University's Comparative Literature broadens the context of single works of literature, provides a method of looking beyond the national frontiers of languages and cultures, and studies major authors, periods, genres, trends and movements in international contexts.

Comparative Literature is also, by tradition, the study of literature beyond the geocultural boundaries of one particular country or hemispheric region. In addition, it pays special attention to the study of relationships between literature and other areas of knowledge and intellectual inquiry. These include linguistics, the visual and performing arts (e.g., cinema, painting, sculpture, architecture, music), philosophy, history, the social sciences (e.g., politics, economics, sociology), the sciences, religion, and so forth. In sum, it is the comparison of the literary with other spheres of human epistemology, expression and intellectual investigation.
