Comparative Cultures and Literary Studies Minor

The Comparative Cultures and Literary Studies (CCLS) program examines culture and literature across linguistic, national, and cultural boundaries. It is offered as a major or a minor, and reflects Loyola's strong commitment to providing students with an international and global perspective.

Unlike other interdisciplinary programs, the CCLS minor has a strong foreign language component and traditionally appeals to students who love language and culture and want to be active and marketable in a global world.

Classics, English, fine arts, history, modern languages and literatures, philosophy, political science, theology, and writing and media.
