The master's degree in Comparative Literature: Literary and Cultural Studies adopts an interdisciplinary perspective to train students in one of the most active fields in humanistic studies today: comparative literature and, in general, studies on present-day culture, using a predominantly text and discourse-based approach. This programme is addressed to those students interested in becoming highly qualified researchers in the field of comparative literature from a multidisciplinary perspective in which literature is related to other cultural manifestations such as cinema, comic books, art, television fiction and cyber culture. Although this master's degree is oriented towards research and advanced training, it is also useful in a professional context, such as publishing, editing, cultural management, teaching of supra-national literature and culture, or even translation or cultural mediation, two activities of special importance in the new social context resulting from globalisation.
