Literature in Translation

(For 2013–2014 academic year)
Director M.A. Calo

Although Colgate does not have a formal major in comparative literature, it is fortunate to have a number of courses in literature in translation. Some of these courses are offered in conjunction with university studies programs, but all count toward the Human Thought and Expression area of inquiry requirement.
