Comparative Literature

The MLitt in Comparative Literature explores the transnational understanding of literature and culture, providing students with a critical evaluation of theoretical approaches combined with the intensive study of an extremely broad range of European texts and their relations to other literatures. The taught portion of the course consists of four compulsory modules and a range of optional modules held over two semesters. Classes are delivered through a mixture of lectures (with around 20 students) and seminars (which vary from individual one-to-one teaching up to ten students). Modules are assessed through coursework; there are no final exams for this programme. You will spend the summer months focusing on researching and writing a final dissertation of no more than 15,000 words.
