BeschreibungMA in Modern German and Comparative Literature

This MA is aimed at students who want to deepen their knowledge of modern German literature within a broader European context. Kent is one of the few universities in the UK to have a thriving Comparative Literature department; within an expanding school of European culture, students will hone their literary and analytical skills not only on German texts, but also on a broader range of modern literature.

As a taught course, the MA is suitable both for those who wish to take their undergraduate studies a stage further, and for those who wish to go on to a career in literary studies or intend to do a PhD.


Entry Requirements
A first- or second-class honours degree in a relevant subject (or equivalent).

The Programme
The MA in Comparative Literature is aimed at graduates in modern languages who are seeking to consolidate their knowledge in a wider context, graduates in English and/or American Literature wishing to diversify their interests, and graduates in a range of other Humanities subjects (including History, Philosophy, and Theology) who would like to bring their preoccupations to bear on literary material. Non-linguists are able to study exclusively through the medium of English while modern linguists (in French, German, Italian, and Spanish) have the opportunity to read extensively in their specialist language or languages. When the coursework is completed, students can devote their MA dissertation to exploring connections between the literatures of two or more nationalities.

The MA programme involves three main interweaving strands:
Themes and major figures in European literature and aesthetics from the eighteenth century to the present day.
Interactions between European literatures, or between European and non-European literatures, as reflected in important genres such as autobiography and the fantastic.
Literature and theory, with specific emphasis on ways of analysing literary and other texts (these include psychoanalysis, narratology, feminist and post-feminist criticism, and deconstruction).
These strands are designed to be complementary and to encourage comparative analysis in a variety of contexts: national literatures, genres, media, and theory.
