Program Description

Studying Philosophy and English literature together will allow you to imbue your creative writing with a consideration of universal questions, creating literature with substance as well as style.

You’ll be introduced to the biggest puzzles that have fascinated humans for centuries, as well as finding out how the greatest minds have tried to solve them. You’ll also discover the importance of English literature; how it is affected by the culture, language, technology and economics of the period, but also how it influences readers and society itself. By studying English literature you will, in turn, explore many other subjects, including history, politics, religion, psychology and the history of art.

• Tuition fees for students who have citizens' rights after Brexit: £9,250/year
