​​​​The Foreign Literatures programme at the Ben-Gurion University of the Negev offers either a thesis (research) track or a non-thesis (general) track.


The Foreign Literatures programme at the Ben-Gurion University of the Negev has three objectives:

  • to expose students to current research topics in the field;
  • to engage students in academic discourse, research methodologies and critical reasoning;
  • to train students in academic writing and usage of professional literature.

​​​​​The MA program in Foreign Literatures explores Western literature of various periods and contexts, with a strong focus on British and American literature. Literary texts are studied in the context of cross-cultural, interdisciplinary and comparative approaches.

The courses are taught by internationally-renowned scholars who employ a wide range of theoretical and cultural approaches. Students come from all backgrounds, something which makes for a pluralist academic community and a lively exchange of ideas. The informal atmosphere of our relatively small department provides a nurturing learning environment, allowing for individual attention and guidance.
