Modern Languages and Literatures: Literatures in Translation


Literatures in Translation


Students who are already proficient in a particular foreign language are urged to select an appropriate literature/culture course taught in the original language. LITR courses provide students with the opportunity to study cultural material that they cannot read in the original and often to study literature in a comparative context.

In some language programs, these courses cannot be substituted for the introductory course sequence between 010 and 020 to satisfy departmental prerequisites for a major or minor in the original languages, but many of  these courses can satisfy the 8 credit requirement of a foreign literature/studies major as each section specifies.
