Course Requirements

The CMLT Program requires six courses, completed in two semesters of coursework. These courses will establish coverage in English and one other language's literature. These requirements include ENGL602 (Critical Theory and Literary Criticism), ENGL 611 (Approaches to College Composition), two graduate level courses on early modern literature (one of which must be taken in English and the other in the appropriate language/literature department), and two graduate level courses on modern literature (one of which must be taken in English and the other in the appropriate language/literature department). If appropriate graduate classes are not offered in your non-English language of choice, you may substitute independent studies or 400 level courses, with the Comparative Literature Director’s permission.

At the end of each semester of coursework, please turn in a completed self-evaluation form to the Comparative Literature Director. These forms will help you, your advising team and the Director make an honest assessment of your progress in the program.
