I was intrigued by the broad scope of the title and proceeded to research it. A few months later, when I wrote my application for Fordham I proudly identified one of my majors as Comparative Literature. The reason why Comparative Literature is one of my niches is because I do not want to be restricted to a certain culture or language. With this major I've also realized the importance of primary sources and reading a book in its original language. Yes, you may be asked what Comparative Literature is on notable occasions. English majors may gawk at you and other peers may give a puzzled look. However, as long as you're passionate about the rich fundamentals of Comparative Literature, I'm confident you'll be as comfortable with this major as I am.   ~Sogand Ahmadi Afkari
