English and Comparative Literature

This degree combines English literature with different literatures from around the world. You’ll choose from the whole range of options in the School of English, including writers from Africa, Asia, Australasia, Canada and the Caribbean. You’ll also study texts in Ancient Greek, Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Latin, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish. You don’t need any knowledge of foreign languages - all texts are taught in translation. Core modules will introduce you to world literature and issues such as genre, influence and reception. Then you’ll choose from a wide range of optional modules to pursue topics that interest you. You’ll be taught by tutors from the Schools of English and Languages, Cultures and Societies who are also part of the Centre for World Literatures. Between them they provide diverse expertise to help you gain a deeper understanding of literature from around the world – and develop skills that are valuable to employers.
