Comparative Literature offers a secondary field for students who are interested in the study of literature, literary and cultural theory, and other forms of representation in more than one culture or language. More information about the Comparative Literature secondary field can be found in the Harvard College Handbook for Students.
Advising Resources and Expectations
All students interested in pursuing a secondary field in Comparative Literature should contact our Director of Undergraduate Studies, Dr. Sandra Naddaff as soon as possible to discuss their program of study. Since only Comparative Literature students are allowed to enroll in Comp Lit 97, students pursuing a secondary field in Comparative Literature should contact the Director of Undergraduate Studies before the first meeting of the sophomore tutorial (in the spring semester.) The DUS will be responsible for advising these students, although the expectation will be that students working towards a secondary field in Comparative Literature will monitor their own progress towards fulfillment of the requirements.
