I would like to know from some postgrad SOAS students how the MA comparative lit. program is for them. I've been comparing and looking at different modules offered in various UK universities in comparative lit. and I'm liking the options available at SOAS the most. But because I haven't been to any UK unis yet, I cannot make a fully informed or confident decision. So if there is anything that postgrad students can tell me about MA in comparative lit. at SOAS, that would be of much help to me. Like what should I be expecting in it, how are the modules, what type of student is best suited for SOAS?
I'm still conflicted about what my focus in comparative lit. might be, maybe east asian lit. or south asian lit. or maybe both...I am not sure. So which universities would be best for studying such literatures?
Also what worries me is everywhere I search for MA in comparative literature in UK, SOAS never shows up in the rankings. that's what hinders my confidence, so if someone from inside of SOAS can let me know how things are...as from the outside it seems pretty invisible for people outside of UK
MA in comparative lit.
