Literature in Translation


Literature in Translation courses deal with individual foreign literatures in English translation. They are offered by the departments of African Languages and Literature, Classics, East Asian, French, German, Hebrew and Semitic Studies, Italian, Languages and Cultures of Asia, Scandinavian, and Slavic Languages, for students not having a command of the foreign language who may wish to acquaint themselves with the best in those literatures. They do not carry credit as a foreign language; neither do they carry credit toward a major or minor in comparative literature. However, they do count toward the humanities literature requirement.
