This joint honours course in Comparative Literature and Culture and English gives students access to a world of literature, allowing them to compare and contrast the English literary tradition with an international canon of works. It will provide students with the opportunity to combine the study of global literature, philosophy, film and art with the rigorous critical study of English literature, developing them as a culturally-aware, creative and adaptable thinker, with impressive communication and presentation skills. Students can choose from an exceptionally wide range of fascinating options, spanning continents and centuries, from antiquity to the present day, covering novels, poetry, philosophy, cinema and art. Students will read, watch, and compare texts from Ancient Greece to contemporary New York, from Cuba to Korea, from epics to crime fiction, and from tragedy to the avant-garde. Comparative Literature and Culture also enables students to study a variety of foreign texts originally written in many languages, all translated into English.
