Studying Comparative Literature provides you with the ability to examine literature critically and from many different perspectives. You will gain insight into your own writing and see how modern texts are associated with older ones. These qualities, along with an understanding for historical change, are increasingly important in society. The knowledge provided by Comparative Literature is useful in many different fields.
You could work in publishing or theatre, in the media or in teaching, or at public authorities with links to arts and culture. Critics, writers and researchers in aesthetic subjects also benefit from having studied Comparative Literature.
