Comparative literature is the study of interrelationships among literary texts, themes, periods, theories, and genres without specific regard for national or linguistic boundaries. Beloit’s comparative literature major draws on the college’s strong offerings in modern languages, classics, English, and international studies.

Comparative literature students often supplement their majors by studying languages at Beloit and overseas and taking part in college-wide events like the International Student Symposium and other literary events that emphasize world literature.

The major in comparative literature rests on the premise that responsible criticism of literature requires a thorough knowledge of a language plus its literary and intellectual tradition and a careful study of at least one other literature composed in a different language, place, or time.

Comparative literature majors take a core course in literary methods and literary theory. With guidance from their advisor, they choose an appropriate selection of seven classical and world literature courses.
