Literatures in English

Format: Campus

Program Description:

UCSD's comparative emphasis offers several advantages for the study of literature in English. By actively studying in a second (and even a third) literature, students are in a unique position to explore theoretical currents and critical modes within and beyond the English-speaking world, and to evaluate claims for the uniqueness of its national literary traditions.
