Studies in International Literatures and Cultures (SILC) subjects are taught in English. These subjects offer either a specific or comparative focus on global cultures and provide students the opportunity to examine a range of global cultures. SILC subjects are an excellent way for students, regardless of foreign language proficiency to deepen their understanding of other cultures.

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 Eva Dessein.
