Dublin City University, Faculty of Humanities & Social Sciences:
Dublin City University is delighted to offer a brand-new post-graduate MA in Comparative Literature, exclusively taught at our state of the art campus on the North-side of Dublin. This exciting new MA degree can be studied full-time or part-time and is designed to further the student's knowledge and proficiency in English literature. This programme offers graduates in languages, and related arts and humanities subjects, a cross-disciplinary, inter-medial training, which includes theoretical aspects and practical analysis of literature. DCU is the only Irish university offering such a degree. From our state of the art facility in north Dublin, you can learn in comfort in a university recently listed as one of the top 50 in the world. International students welcome.
- Exclusive MA Degree - only taught at DCU
Whilst Comparative Literature degrees have been offered all over the world since the late 19th century, DCU is the only Irish university offering such a degree. Graduates in languages and related arts and humanities subjects now have the opportunity to combine their chosen disciplines in their postgraduate studies. The MA in Comparative Literature was the first of its kind in Ireland. It has developed into a very popular and versatile degree. None of the taught modules appear on other, mono-cultural, literary degrees in DCU.
State of the art facilities
DCU was recently voted one of the top 50 universities in the world. At DCU we focus on the quality of the 'learning experience' for each student. Because of this focus on academic excellence, we ensure that your degree is highly regarded, both nationally and internationally, and that you are equipped to be successful in all aspects of your life: both in the workplace and in wider society. We strive constantly to improve the quality of our degree programmes and this has been recognised in many external reviews.
Respected and employable graduates
DCU graduates are highly sought after by employers. A 2011 survey of our most recent graduates (those who graduated with a degree in 2010) demonstrated that nearly 90% of those who responded to the survey were either in employment or in further study. This is a very high percentage and much higher than the national average measured across all Irish universities. Some of the students who have been awarded this MA have gone on to do a Ph.D. in Comparative Literature. Others are now literary critics, writers, editors working with publishers, teachers, academics, librarians and cultural event organisers.
