About

The World Languages and Cultures PhD program offered at University of Utah is available with a specialization in Comparative Literary and Cultural Studies (CLCS).

Overview

The World Languages and Cultures PhD program offered at University of Utah is characterized by its unique combination of depth and breadth — a combination that promotes innovative and illuminating intersections among diverse fields of study. All students must choose a minimum of two language/culture areas beyond English. 

What you will learn

Students with a European emphasis typically choose literature, culture, and theory seminars from at least two of the Department’s graduate focus areas (Spanish, French, and German). Strong offerings in Middle Eastern languages and literatures form another critical cluster. In addition, qualified students may tailor individualized programs of study that draw on faculty expertise in areas ranging from Japanese and Chinese literature to Russian and the classics, among others. All students will take theory and topic seminars taught in English that bring together overarching ideas from across the field. A heterogeneous approach to combining courses and topics is encouraged — an approach that continues in the student’s comprehensive examinations, independent research, and dissertation.

Programme Structure

Courses include:

  • The Sublime from Kant to Mishima, Murakami, and Kushner
  • Film, Popular Culture, and Psychoanalysis
  • The Idea of the Self East and West
