Trinity's interdisciplinary Comparative Literature minor is a program designed for students who want to pursue the study of literature unrestricted by national boundaries and conventional demarcations of culture.

Courses in the program recognize that all literary texts exist within the framework of world culture and emphasize the importance of bringing a multicultural perspective to the understanding of literary traditions. As an interdisciplinary program, the minor draws faculty from across University departments including, English, Modern Languages and Literatures, Religion, Speech and Drama, and Political Science.

The student experience in Comparative Literature offers students a program that combines their diverse areas of interest into one interdisciplinary area of study with an international perspective. There are opportunities for students to participate in the Study Abroad program as well as participate in events and lectures.
