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 Spring/Summer 2002. Courses that earn Humanities credit are so designated. Please consult the departmental and program listings in thisCourse Guide for course descriptions and further information.
