Course summary

The MLitt in German and Comparative Literature offers a unique opportunity to gain a comparative perspective on German literature through a joint qualification from the University of St Andrews (MLitt) and the University of Bonn in Germany (MA).

Course information

The MLitt in German and Comparative Literature is a two-year taught programme run jointly by the School of Modern Languages at St Andrews and the University of Bonn.

The programme will deepen your knowledge of the latest thinking in literary and comparative studies and give you the research, communication and writing skills needed to embark on a PhD or top-level graduate career.

Students spend their first year in Germany and the second year in Scotland.

Highlights

  • Students become truly bilingual and intercultural by studying at two world-renowned and historic universities.
  • The course combines a theoretical grounding in comparative literature with the practical experience of a transnational degree.
  • The programme is taught by a group of internationally renowned experts in all major areas of German and comparative studies from the Middle Ages to the 21st century.

Teaching format

Students spend their first year at the University of Bonn in Germany where they will take two compulsory modules on comparative literature and have a choice of optional modules covering a wide range of topics from medieval texts to current trends in German literature.

Students will spend their second year at the University of St Andrews in Scotland, where one semester will be devoted to studying two compulsory modules (and in some cases an additional optional module), and the second semester will be spent focused on writing an 18,000-word dissertation.
