Course summary

Many employers seek graduates with the critical thinking skills to solve practical problems, both logically and creatively. Our BA Philosophy and Literature trains you to do this and provides you with a rigorous training in both philosophy and literature. Our wide-ranging and flexible curriculum embraces different traditions of philosophical thought, and explores English literature through several genres and periods. Our philosophical strengths lie in the areas of ethics, political philosophy, philosophy of religion, and European philosophy (including critical theory, phenomenology, and existentialism). Meanwhile our academics from our Department of Literature, Film and Theatre Studies are award-winning poets, novelists, playwrights and writers. We're proud of our literary legacy and over the years we've been home to Nobel Prize winners, Booker Prize winners and Pulitzer Prize winners. You spend your third year studying abroad allowing you to experience other cultures and languages, to broaden your degree socially and academically, and to demonstrate to employers that you are mature, adaptable, and organised.
