Course Info
TESTIMONIAL Studying Comparative Literature at Queen Mary has been amazing. The course is challenging, progressive and engages with real world issues through the study of literature, art, film and history on a global scale. The best thing about Comparative Literature is the ability to study texts from countries including Mexico, China and Nigeria that a more traditional literature degree would not include.
