The Masters in Comparative Literature offers interdisciplinary study across linguistic cultures as well as academic fields. Benefitting from a strong and diverse School of Modern Languages and Cultures, you will be able to take courses in the comparative study of literatures, film, visual arts, or societies of two or more language areas OR across two or more disciplines. The high degree of flexibility means that you are able to design a unique programme of study suited to your interests.
You should normally have a good Honours degree (2:1 or better) or equivalent in a Modern Foreign Language or cognate discipline (such as English Literature or Philosophy).
Fluency in one modern foreign language taught in the School and reading knowledge or better in another is recommended. It is highly recommended that you come with a strong background in literary or cultural theory, so that you are equipped to read and understand the assigned texts.
