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):
|Taste and Criticism in Art
|Historical Development of Rhetorical Theory
|Issues in Rhetorical Theory
|Comparative Criticism I: Classical to Neoclassical *
|Comparative Criticism II: Romantic to Contemporary *
|Contemporary Literary Theory
|Survey of Contemporary Literary Theory
|Studies in Critical Theory
|French Literary Theory and Criticism
|German Literary Theory and Criticism
|Seminar in Philosophy of Literature
|European Philosophy Seminar
|Aesthetic Seminar *
|Stylistic and Literary Criticism
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.
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.
Graduate courses carry numbers from 500 to 699 and 800 to 899. Advanced undergraduate courses numbered between 400 and 499 may be used to meet some graduate degree requirements when taken by graduate students. Courses below the 400 level may not. A graduate student may register for or audit these courses in order to make up deficiencies or to fill in gaps in previous education but not to meet requirements for an advanced degree.
