Course summary

TEF Silver

University of Bristol has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.

Find out more about the TEF.

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, which involves the close, analytical study of poetry, fiction and drama.

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 options and research-led special subjects.

The curriculum is designed to enable you to benefit from the research expertise of members of staff from both disciplines.
