Studies in International Literatures and Cultures (SILC) subjects are taught in English. These subjects offer both a specific and comparative focus on global cultures and provide students the opportunity to examine a full spectrum of global cultures. SILC subjects are an excellent way for students with and without foreign language proficiency to deepen their understanding of other cultures, and comparatively, their own.

SILC subjects may be applied to the SILC Concentration. Learn more about the SILC Concentration requirements at the Academic Programs page. The SILC Concentration advisor is Emma Teng.
