Course summary

At Keele University, we’re different. Nestled in 600 acres of countryside in the heart of the UK, we have a big campus but a small and cosmopolitan community. We’re proud to be ‘University of the Year for Student Experience’ in The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2017, in addition to having been ranked No.1 in the National Student Survey 2014-2016. This is because it’s more than green and lovely, it’s a place of research and academic excellence too.At Keele, studying a combined honours degree will include some modules from both of the single honours degrees. In this case, your programme will be made up of a combination of modules from both English Literature and Philosophy.English Literature and Philosophy at Keele allows you to explore central questions about language, thought and the expression of ideas. You will trace the history of human thought about important questions concerning knowledge, the mind and the world in the traditions of Europe, India and China.Many philosophers – Ludwig Wittgenstein, Donald Davidson and Stanley Cavell, for example – have taken language or literature as the subject of their reflections, while some such as Jean-Paul Sartre and Simone de Beauvoir have used literature to explore philosophical ideas. Both subjects require students to consider the biggest questions for humankind, and to develop an alert awareness of the use of language, form and narrative in exploring these questions. Ethical and epistemological issues are central to great works of poetry and prose.This programme encourages complementary skills and sensitivities in language use and interpretation. It also offers you options in both Film Studies and Creative Writing. For these reasons, it is a classic and very popular Keele combination. The first student ever to graduate from Keele did so in Philosophy and English.Studying English Literature and Philosophy will equip you with a wide range of skills, critical thinking and a superb grounding in understanding the way people think and approach problems, all of which are prized by employers and adaptable to a wide range of careers. You could move into education, the law, finance, government, publishing, the media, or the arts. If you would like to enhance your degree, Keele’s Language Centre offers a variety of language courses.
