- The Master of Arts in Studies in Comparative Literatures and Arts offered by Brock University is an interdisciplinary and inter faculty program that not only focuses on the study of literature from different nations, but also examines the ways in which literature enters into dialogue with the fine and performing arts. Throughout the program, students examine contemporary approaches to texts of various types, as well as the possibilities and problems that arise in comparative studies, including issues related to the translation and adaptation of works. Through coursework, students are encouraged to develop a cross-disciplinary understanding of how works of art or cultural production evolve, are received, and are interpreted.
- While the program offers both a thesis option and a major essay option, students are strongly encouraged to pursue the major essay option, as the additional coursework required by this stream provides more opportunity for comparative analysis across the arts.
