Masters in Comparative Literature

Comparative literature is an academic field that exams the different literature between two or more groups. These groups are distinguished by differences in nationality, linguistics, or culture. The field also explores differences in art, history, the media and philosophy in terms of literature. Common courses you can expect to take as you work toward earning your Masters in Comparative Literature are world literature, epics, and literary genres. The purpose of these classes is to expand your view of cultures. Graduate studies emphasize the importance of the written and spoken word and how they can be interpreted.

Since there is a large amount of delivery methods when studying this major, most of which are digital, you can complete much of your coursework online from home. You can view digital lectures, online texts, CD instructions, and use the popular online Blackboard for communication between instructors and students. As long as you have access to the internet from home and a computer that you have unlimited access to, there is nothing stopping you from seeing what Comparative Literature Master’s Programs are available online. You may be required to possess different software like Java, Firefox, media readers and players. These applications are free and easily accessible for download online.

There is no standard career for an individual who has completed graduate studies in comparative literature. Potential jobs can be found in many different sectors, including journalism, government services, the arts, social services or positions with magazines, websites or other publishers. You also have the option of teaching when you finish a master’s degree, an option that is unavailable to those with undergraduate degrees. A report made by the US Bureau of Labor Statistics determined that the mean annual salary of graduates from this degree was about $58,500.
