Comparative Literature

With its exceptional range of modern and ancient languages and cultures, UCL provides a comprehensive environment for comparative literary study. Language and literature departments from across UCL contribute to our programme, including the School of European Languages, Culture & Society (SELCS), the Departments of Greek & Latin, Hebrew & Jewish Studies, and the School of Slavonic & East European Studies (SSEES). A co-operation agreement with the nearby School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) ensures global coverage.

On graduation you will have gained a breadth of knowledge, cultural awareness, writing skills, and a familiarity with advanced textual analysis. You will have a detailed and effective understanding of at least one language other than English and will be able to work flexibly and creatively across cultures and in a range of fields.
