Honors Program

Anton Shammas and Hoda Barakat. Faculty expert, Gil Hochberg.

The honors program is open to Comparative Literature majors with a 3.5 departmental and a 3.25 overall grade-point average. Eligible students interested in this program should contact the Director of Undergraduate Studies or Student Affairs Officer to enter the program. This departmental honors program is an excellent way for a student to deepen their understanding in Comparative Literature and provides an opportunity for students to be mentored closely by a faculty member.

Honors candidates must complete all requirements for the major and an honors research paper (in addition to regular course requirements) in two of the four required upper division comparative literature courses. Students must also complete Comparative Literature 198 with a core faculty member in which they write a senior honors thesis of approximately 25 pages.

For more information, we strongly recommend that you meet with the Director of Undergraduate Studies or Student Affairs Officer whose contact information is found under advising.
