The best way in to comparative study or work on translation is to take a Joint Degree, such as:

At Masters Level

Masters courses are run by the separate Faculties:

Faculty of Classics ; Classical Languages and Literature MPhil/MSt

Faculty of Music ; MLitt in Music

On many of these courses it is possible to take options from other faculties and so to create what is in practice your own comparative programme. For example, students following the MSt in English can take options in Modern Languages, and vice versa. If you would like to find out more, please ask the Graduate Studies Offices of the Faculties concerned.
