Total Minimum Units for the Minor: 24 Units (for Bulletin year 2015/2016 and earlier)
Core Courses: 9 Units
- CWL 400, Approaches to Comparative Literature: 3 Units
- 2 CWL courses (must fulfill requirements below): 6 Units
These two courses must involve comparison of literary texts from more than one national/linguistic tradition. For example, CWL 420, Studies in Comparative Literature; CWL 430, Heroic Tales of the Mediterranean.
You are not required to learn a foreign language for the minor.
Program Electives: 15 units
In consultation with departmental advisers, students select upper-division literature courses that combine a sense of the historical, linguistic, and critical breadth of literary studies with a student-defined area of focus that fits within the general discipline of comparative literature.
Please note that up to 6 units maximum, in lower-division CWL courses only, may be used toward the total units. All other courses must be upper-division courses.
