Skip To:

Spring

Summer

In the College of Literature, Science, and the Arts, courses in foreign literature and culture are taught in a number of departments and programs, and the courses work with texts in more than forty languages. These departments and programs also offer literature and culture courses which use texts translated into English in order to make these works available to all students.

The LS&A Office of the Associate Dean for Undergraduate Education has prepared the following list to assist students interested in electing courses that focus on foreign literature and culture in English translation. What follows is a list of such courses offered in LS&A for the Winter Term, 1999. Courses that earn Humanities credit are so designated. Please consult the departmental and program listings in this Course Guide for course descriptions and further information.

This list is subject to change by the Associate Dean for Undergraduate Education.
