Why study Philosophy and English Literature at UWTSD Lampeter?

¥ Philosophy explores the big questions – Who are we? What is our place in the world? How should we live? What is reality? Philosophy approaches such questions through argument, vision and imagination.
¥ Philosophy is different from other academic disciplines in that it teaches you not what to think, but how to think, challenging one's beliefs and assumptions about the world.
¥ This degree combines a commitment to the large historical picture of English studies (from Beowulf to Tom Wolfe) with the study of key philosophical ideas from the Ancient World to the modern day, exploring ideas of identity, agency and representation.
¥ We take an immersive approach to learning offering a diverse range of teaching approaches, including lectures, seminars, tutorials and workshop sessions.
¥ You will attend small-group classes with a focus on discussion and learning activities to encourage the self-development and critical reflection accepted as key to the development of personal and professional capacities.
