Special Areas of Study

Literature in Translation

A literature-in-translation course ordinarily involves the study in English translation of assigned literary works from a single foreign language. Courses in which English translations of literary works from more than one foreign language are assigned and studied may be offered by a department in which two or more foreign languages are taught or by the Comparative Literature program. Literature-in-translation courses are offered for students who do not have a command of the respective foreign languages and who wish to acquaint themselves with the literature in those languages. Each course is taught by an instructor who knows the original language(s) well and is able to discuss knowledgeably the relative strengths and weaknesses of the translations used in the course.

All the courses listed below carry credit as electives. The courses in classics may be used to fulfill the requirements for the classical civilization concentration. Courses in Italian may be used to fulfill the requirements for option B of the major in Italian. None of these courses carries foreign language credit.

In the list below, courses are identified only by curricular area, number, and title. For the specific content and prerequisites of each course, see its listing under the originating department elsewhere in this catalog.
