Comparative Literature



We can’t wait to introduce you to a whole world of exciting literature – as we stretch beyond modern European texts to the Americas, Australia, India, the Middle East, and North and sub-Saharan Africa – and so much more.

We’ve brought together several items to give you all the information you need about the course. Don’t forget you can contact a current Comparative Literature student on Unibuddy at any time with questions you might have about our courses.

Please note that as of August 2022 the Departments of German, French, Spanish, Portuguese & Latin American Studies and Comparative Literature merged to form the Department of Languages, Literatures and Cultures.
