MA 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. The programme consists of four modules, each of which is assessed by a 5000-word essay. This will then be supplemented by a dissertation (approximately 12,000 words) on a subject arising out of the student’s work over the course of the year.

Prior knowledge of German (proven by BA degree or equivalent) will be a course requirement.

The programme is offered on a full-time basis, with completion of the programme in one year, or on a part-time basis, with completion of the programme in two years.
