MA Philosophy and Literature


Course Description

Study

Study many complex areas of philosophy, considering the work of Wittgenstein, Kant and Chomsky, plus exploration of phenomenology, metaphilosophy, C20th analytic and Classical philosophy all with UEA’s distinctive concentration of expertise and leading research in the areas of philosophy and literature. It is widely acknowledged that because the literary form of philosophy is part of its philosophical value, and the philosophical knowledge provided by literature is part of its literary value, both subjects naturally should be studied together.

Structure

The MA in Philosophy and Literature offers explores the deep links between the two subjects, allowing students to choose from a range of modules and share a research workshop jointly taught by philosophers and literary specialists. This MA is therefore a joint degree, with two core modules compulsory, and students select two other modules to complement them. All four modules are assessed by coursework essays. Students also write dissertation and participate in the philosophy postgraduate workshop.

Teaching

In research and graduate teaching, UEA’s School of Philosophy collaborates with its internationally leading disciplines of Literature and Creative Writing, Environmental Sciences, and Economics. Philosophy offers a lively research environment that is an integral part of the UEA's vibrant Graduate School of the Humanities.

Employability

The MA is an ideal supplement to an undergraduate degree in either philosophy or literature, plus an excellent introduction to advanced research work in either field.
