Course content

Suited to graduates who majored in Philosophy or English Literature or both, this Master’s programme allows you to investigate the links between the two disciplines, and to discover areas for your own research.

You take four taught modules, some from Philosophy and some from our world-famous School of Literature, Drama and Creative Writing, complemented by a whole-year programme of workshops shared with our PhD students, which develops your skills in presenting your research to others, and helps you grasp what it would be to work on a PhD.

The 90 credit dissertation, on a topic that typically engages both your literary and philosophical interests, usually follows on from some work done in the taught modules. This degree serves as preparation for PhD applications, but is also a good postgraduate qualification that will be an advantage for many other careers involving good writing, time-management and thinking skills.
