Course content

With a long-standing commitment to theory and a progressive understanding of the discipline, the Comparative Literature Department has also embarked on a new effort to define the specific contributions of the humanities to the pressing socio-political and ethical concerns of the contemporary world. It actively embraces new directions for trans-disciplinary research and attempts to determine how such research can help to draw forth and carry forward the fundamental questions that concern the humanities. A strong engagement with the question of literary language and with contemporary work in the arts anchors this effort to rethink the place of the humanities and literary study while respecting the special temporalities and forms of encounter that characterize these domains.

The Department of Comparative Literature at Binghamton University offers three avenues of graduate study with MA and PhD options. It features, in addition to its primary MA and PhD programs in Comparative Literature, an MA in Translation Studies, a unique interdisciplinary doctoral program in Philosophy, Literature, and the Theory of Criticism, as well as a PhD in Translation Studies through the internationally recognized Translation Research and Instruction Program (TRIP).

Recent doctoral graduates have gone on to positions such as an assistant professor of English at Molloy College, professor of translation at Universidad de Antioqua, Columbia, and positions at Le Moyne, Appalachin State University, and Global IT.

All applicants must submit the following:

- Online graduate degree application and application fee
- Transcripts from each college/university you have attended
