Wide-ranging and thought-provoking, our programmes in Comparative Literature and World Literature develop your critical literary skills and extend your cultural knowledge by giving you international awareness. You study major writers from across the world in English translation.
It is possible to add a placement year or a year abroad to your programme. Both programmes are also available as part of a joint honours degree.
Comparative Literature transcends national and cultural boundaries, offering students a global view of literature.
