Welcome to Comparative Literature, World Literature, and Translation Studies at UC Santa Barbara.
Our Comparative and World Literature Program provides undergraduates with the opportunity to work closely with faculty in their fields of study. It offers graduate students extensive guidance and support in their teaching, research, and community engagement as they develop into successful professionals.
Alumni from our graduate program have secured research/teaching positions or post-doctoral fellowships in humanities departments at Dartmouth, Harvard, Rutgers, CU Boulder, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Vanderbilt, Yale and at other outstanding colleges and universities. We also strive to prepare our students for alternative careers.
