Program in Comparative Literature

Admission Overview

The Graduate Admissions Committee of the Program accepts approximately 10 to 15% of the students who apply. The Program admits students in the fall semester only.

The Fall 2020 application deadline is 11:59 pm on December 15, 2019. It is also the early deadline for those wishing to be considered for University Fellowships.

Almost all of those who attend the program receive financial aid—a few in the form of fellowships, most in the form of teaching assistantships or assistant instructorships awarded by the language and literature departments at the University.

Applicants should read all the information on this website and at the Graduate School website, and should follow instructions carefully. Failure to do so will result in delays or incomplete files which will not be reviewed.
