Funding and Learning Opportunites
One of the salient qualities of the Program in Literature is its commitment to deep and intensive knowledge of languages. Such a commitment naturally inclines us to support opportunities to study abroad. These rich opportunities are available owing to the dedication of the Program and its component departments to enriching and completing student knowledge through first-hand contact with languages and cultures.
