Study content

In its reciprocal relationship to society, literature represents a complex phenomenon that transcends national, cultural and media boundaries. The Master's programme in International Literature provides students with extended competences in comparative work across the borders of national literatures, the comparative analysis of texts and other media products as well as in philologies. The Master's programme builds on the Bachelor's programme "Comparative Literature", but also offers new perspectives to lateral entrants from other subjects with a philological connection.
