Course summary

This dynamic programme examines world literature from diverse geographical and cultural perspectives and equips students for a career in today's global society. Alongside cultural topics you will study up to two foreign languages (one per year), selected from an exceptional range of modern and ancient languages including Japanese, Arabic and Mandarin Chinese as well as European languages.

Your learning

Your learning will take place through lectures, seminars, tutorials, interactive groups and multimedia projects. All Comparative Literature students in the same year will take the same core modules. Optional modules will be taught by specialist staff members across UCL and will provide you with an opportunity to learn alongside students on other programmes.

Assessment

You will be assessed through written examinations and essays. For language teaching you will be assessed by oral and written examinations. You will complete project work and a dissertation, both of which will contribute to your overall assessment. You will be required to give presentations, work on group and multimedia projects and actively participate in class discussion.

Careers

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.
