Literary Theory, Criticism, and Aesthetics

This is an interdisciplinary doctoral minor that is administered by two designated advisers, one from the Department of Comparative Literature and one from the Department of Philosophy. Students who are admitted to the minor will develop courses of study suited to their special interests. The minor for each student will be planned jointly by the student and the two advisers, in consultation with the student's doctoral adviser in his or her major field. Any change in the plan must be approved by all of the advisers. A minimum of 15 credits must be selected from among the following courses (including at least 3 credits each in comparative literature and philosophy, chosen from the asterisked courses): ART H 410, CMLIT 502*, 503*, 580, ENGL 581, 582, 583, FR 571, GER 591, PHIL 413, 414*, 516*, 581, 582, SPAN 587, SPCOM 503, 505, 507, or THEA 503, 504. Note 1: 3 credits of SUBJ 596 in one of the nine subject areas indicated may be substituted for one of the non-asterisked 3-credit courses. Note 2: A student majoring in one of the nine subject areas may not include any courses in that field as part of the minor. Appropriate courses may be substituted.
