Declaring Comp Lit

Harvard students interested in concentrating in Comparative Literature need to submit the form below in the fall of their sophomore year:


You will be asked to submit the following items along with the form:

  • Your unofficial transcript
  • An essay that you have written in College that speaks to your intellectual interests

The Next Concentration Declaration deadline will be taking place in November 2021. Please submit this form as early as possible and not later than a week or so before the concentration declaration deadline, Nov. 18, 2021. Once we have received the form, we will be in touch with you to schedule an advising conversation with a member of our department. This is a chance for you to learn more about the department and our faculty, and for us to learn more about you and your interests.

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact to contact Sandra Naddaff, Director of Studies, at Dr. Naddaff's Fall 2021 Office Hours are Wednesdays 3-4:30pm and you can sign up for your appointment on this page.
