Course programme

M.Phil in Comparative Literature

The Centre for Comparative Literature functioning since 1988, aims at providing an interface between literatures and cultures with a contemporary charge. The Centre offers research programmes in M.Phil and Ph.D. The endeavour is to: encourage young learners to research expressive modes and archives of knowledge beyond those of their own culture; forge alliances with and develop sensitivity to differences in cultures and traditions; develop a critical awareness of socio-political and cultural discourses in terms of their impact on the literary and cultural studies.

The M.Phil. is a two-semester programme, which includes course work and a dissertation. The Courses comprising of 16 credits include: (1) Comparative Theory and Research Methodology; (2) Criticism and Contemporary Theory; and two Courses of the Student's choice from the Courses being offered by the Centre, in consultation with the faculty. The dissertation is required to be written under supervision on a topic approved by the Centre. The programme includes a written examination at the end of the first semester on the courses and submission of a dissertation for examination by the end of second semester.

Applicants for admission to the Centre should note that the medium of instruction in the Centre is English, and they should therefore ensure that they have a good knowledge of English to follow the lectures and to participate in other curricular actives of the Centre. Furthermore, applicants must provide documentary evidence of knowledge of the literatures of at least two languages (one of which may be English). This does not hold in the case of those who already have an M.Phil. in Comparative Literature and are applying for a Ph.D.
