About

The M.A. Comparative Literature and Cultural Studies program at The University of New Mexico  in the Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures offer a transition into advanced literary and cultural study. 

Overview

Students of the Comparative Literature and Cultural Studies program at The University of New Mexico benefit from both individualized faculty attention and involvement in an interdisciplinary research community. In their courses, they encounter the paradigms, major movements and emerging areas of study critical to their own disciplines — French and Francophone Studies, German Studies, and within the CL/CS, the concentrations in Classics, Comparative Literature, and Cultural Studies. They receive professional training focused on developing their own research profiles, compiling a portfolio of teaching techniques, and strengthening their writing and communication skills, including proficiency in foreign languages.

Most importantly, our programs provide a time, a set of intellectual and creative resources, and a place for becoming actively involved in debates about why and in what ways literature and culture matter.
