Welcome to the Ph.D. in Comparative Studies Program!
It is my pleasure to welcome you to the website of the Ph.D. in Comparative Studies. The track in Cultures, Languages & Literatures (CLL) features an interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary course of study that enables doctoral students to develop expertise within traditional disciplines as well as across disciplinary and cultural boundaries . At the heart of our program is our strong belief that cultures, languages and literatures are most fruitfully understood through comparative modes of analysis that include an ever-changing landscape of theory and methodologies. The objectives of the CLL Program are to produce scholars who will teach at the university/college level in more than one academic discipline and in interdisciplinary programs , and who will be able to conduct research that crosses over traditional boundaries in an effort to develop new insights. While most graduates of the program will prepare for the challenges of the academy in an increasingly globalized society, others will prepare for a variety of nonacademic positions in public and private organizations.
