Careers for the Ph.D. in Comparative Literature

UC Irvine’s Comparative Literature Ph.D. prepares students for a career in university teaching and research. Over the last few years, 52-60% of our graduates have found employment in tenure-track positions or have been awarded major postdoctoral fellowships (which are in turn good indications of future tenure-track jobs)—a rate comparable to programs at Stanford University and Duke University. Graduates of our program currently hold tenured or tenure-track positions at Columbia University, Brigham Young University, Cornell University, Princeton University, the University of California at Riverside, Seneca College, SUNY-Buffalo, Tulane University, and the University of Victoria, among many others.
