Comparative Literature

Comparative Literature expands your cultural and literary horizons – you’ll study the interconnections and disparities between literature and other art forms from a range of countries, cultures and periods. Discover more at one of our Open Days.

The study of comparative literature helps you to develop an impressive set of transferable skills, including analytical ability, highly sophisticated reading skills, the ability to put these things in context and first-rate presentation skills.

The Department of Comparative Literature and Culture offers insight into literature from all parts of the globe, as well as exploring connections between literature and other fields such as film and visual culture, geography and the environment, philosophy and political theory, film and music, and childhood studies.

I think what I like the most about studying Comparative Literature at Queen Mary is that it's really varied and I really like that it's really allowed me to see more in the world around me.
