Comparative Literature and Hispanic Studies

In Comparative Literature, you have the opportunity to study texts ranging from Classical Antiquity to the present day in English translation, including works by such famous authors as Homer, Ovid, Dante, Shakespeare, Goethe, Dostoevsky, Balzac, Flaubert, Dickens, Proust and Kafka, as well as Hispanic classics such as Borges and Cortazar.

The programme gives you the opportunity to explore the languages and cultures of Spain and Spanish America while developing your language skills.

Portuguese is also optional for joint honours students. Our facilities include multimedia laboratories, which offer a variety of interactive language learning programmes and dictionaries, and access to audio, video and computer-assisted language learning facilities. Studying on this joint honours, you gain expertise in a specific national tradition, making you able to compare the works of Spanish-language authors to other European ones, and so benefitting from a international perspective on literary history, movements and genres. You also gain the language skills to prepare you for the global job market.
