Course summary

This course gives you the opportunity to study two distinct disciplines:

  • philosophy, which questions everyday assumptions and enquires into the foundations of other forms of knowledge;
  • English literature, in which the study of literary texts offers a means of exploring the complexities of both the past and the present.
You will learn the fundamental principles of logic, metaphysics, epistemology, ethics and political philosophy, and study English literature in its full extent and diversity from the medieval period to the present day, including work on individual authors, topics, and genres. You will also be able to explore your own interests by choosing from a range of stimulating optional and research-led subjects. The curriculum is designed to enable you to benefit from the research expertise of members of staff from both disciplines.
