CLC offers a brilliant balance between honing your comparative, critical and communication skills and developing your cultural awareness and passions. It is a flexible, modular degree programme designed to allow you to develop your own interests.
Comparative Literature and Culture spans fiction, drama, cinema, poetry, philosophy, painting and sculpture from different periods and areas. All modules are taught by leading research specialists (ranked top for research in London, Royal Holloway’s is one of the top ten Modern Languages Departments in the UK).
Your first year is foundational, meaning marks do not count towards your final degree. When you arrive at Royal Holloway, in addition to core courses and options, you’ll take specially-designed courses to help you develop the academic and writing skills that will benefit your university career and beyond. The marks you achieve in your second- and final-year do count with more importance being given to the latter to reward your progress and achievement.
