As opposed to other literary studies courses in the UK (which are commonly affiliated with English departments) the Languages, Literatures, Cultures course offered by Durham University presents a unique opportunity for students who wish to pursue a degree in literatures and comparative studies with a firm emphasis on working on materials in their original language(s). It will thus combine the broad comparative approach to a wide range of seminal historical and current themes in world literature with a strong grounding in linguistic and cultural competence in a particular region or country.
Its purpose is to provide a solid foundation that prepares and indeed invites students to proceed to a PhD in a corresponding field by placing an emphasis on the research-led dissertation component of the course. With an equally strong emphasis on current topics and debates, it will also train students to take up employment in the culture sector.
