The MA in Hispanic Studies and Comparative Literature involves the study of literature beyond national and linguistic borders with a particular focus on Hispanic cultures.
Comparative Literature at Kent involves the study of the literature from two or more cultures, to gain an intercultural and transnational understanding of cultural practice. Hispanic Studies at Kent concerns not just Spanish-speaking world, but also Portuguese and Catalan cultures, crossing linguistic and continental boundaries.
The MA in Hispanic Studies and Comparative Literature introduces you to a wide range of theoretical perspectives, enriching your appreciation of the cultures, texts and critical practices examined in the programme’s various modules. You benefit from expert teaching from members of the Department of Modern Languages and the Department of Comparative Literature to encourage an interdisciplinary dialogue.
In the autumn and spring terms, you take a choice of four modules, before undertaking a 12,000 word dissertation over the summer with supervision from an expert within one of the departments.
This programme is ideal for modern languages graduates who wish to consolidate their knowledge in a wider context; English graduates wishing to diversify their interests; and graduates in other humanities subjects (history, philosophy, theology) who would like to apply their knowledge to literary material.Course structure
