University of Iowa (Department of Cinema & Comparative Literature)




The Department of Cinema and Comparative Literature offers individualized programs in the interdisciplinary study of literature and the study and production of film and audiovisual arts. Our goals are: (1) to develop international perspectives on literature, film, and the arts; (2) to promote interdisciplinary approaches to the cultural study, criticism, and production of literary and audiovisual arts; and (3) to prepare students for careers in related areas, including those aspects of business and the profession that value a demanding liberal arts undergraduate major. C.C.L. at Iowa encourages study in comparative arts, with particular emphasis upon cinema. Students and faculty have easy access to the resources of the Translation Workshop and the Institute for Cinema and Culture.

Departmental faculty offer expertise in the languages and cultural study of the Americas, China, England, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, North Africa, Spain, and and Sub-Saharan Africa. In addition to its own faculty, C.C.L. calls on faculty members in other areas, including American studies, classics, Asian languages and literatures, communication studies, English, French and Italian, German, history, Spanish and Portuguese, Russian, and theatre arts.

The Department of Cinema and Comparative Literature offers the option of 2 undergraduate majors, the B.A. in Comparative Literature or the B.A. in Cinema. Students must ordinarily earn at least 21 semester hours in the major while in residence at the University of Iowa, and meet the requirements described for appropriate program.
