About This Program

The World Literature and Cultures minor is dedicated to the interdisciplinary study of historical and contemporary literature, which is representative of a diversity of the world's cultures. Students explore world literature and cultures with the aid of a variety of disciplinary methods of analysis and interpretation in the study of cultural texts and artifacts, as well as the interactions of the political, economic, cultural and social complexities with literature. The study of world literature and cultures is devoted to promoting a central trend among major research universities in the United States to engage in the critical integration of knowledge that cuts across the different disciplines, with sustained focus on the global study of cultures and literature, past and present.
