Courses cover a broad spectrum of literary genres, historical periods and translated texts from regions such as Asia, Europe, Africa, the Middle East and Latin America.

Students in World Literature have the opportunity to study languages such as Chinese, Italian, Japanese, Persian, Spanish and more ... the language of instruction is English. Students are also encouraged to participate in an international exchange, field school or co-operative education work term to complement their degree.
