Course summary

This four-year degree offers the same advantages as the Comparative Literature BA, with the added attraction of a year spent overseas at one of our partner universities in Europe or the Americas. It combines comparative critical enquiry with a more in-depth study of one modern European language, its literature and culture.

Your learning

You will experience a wide range of learning opportunities, including lectures, seminars, tutorials, interactive groups and multimedia projects. Core modules will be taken together with all Comparative Literature students in your year. Optional modules will be taught by specialist staff from across UCL and will provide you with an opportunity to learn alongside students on other programmes.

Assessment

You will be assessed by written examination and essay. Project work and a dissertation will contribute to your overall assessment. You will be required to give presentations, work on group projects and multimedia projects and actively participate in class discussion. Languages are also assesed by oral examination.

Careers

Upon graduation you will have gained breadth of knowledge, cultural awareness, writing skills, and 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.
