Why Study Comparative Literature MA at Queen Mary University of London?
What is Comparative Literature?
Our thriving and dynamic department offers a range of innovative and highly popular undergraduate and postgraduate programmes, from single honours Comparative Literature to joint honours combinations with History, Film, Linguistics, or one of the following languages: French, German, Iberian and Latin American Studies or Russian.
Comparative Literature is a well-established, demanding and exciting subject which allows you to study literature written in languages from across the world, and to explore literature in conjunction with other cultural and artistic production (film, music, painting, philosophy). It's all about expanding your literary and cultural horizons.

According to eminent comparatist George Steiner, it allows you to "see more". You will be studying:
