Overview

The study of philosophy and English language literary cultures (including theatre, film and creative writing) as part of a dual degree throws you into some of the oldest debates around the very possibility of meaningful life.

They provide you with a complementary set of analytical and interpretative skills to comprehend and elucidate the literary qualities of philosophical texts (ambiguity, style, figurative language), and the philosophical debates underpinning literary texts.

They are mutually supportive subjects (and occasionally antagonistic ones), providing distinct but corresponding methodologies for the interrogation of the foundations of our understanding in and of the world: what is meaning, mind, art, truth or life?

Career opportunities

Teaching is a popular option for those who want to make direct use of their subject knowledge. Others apply the transferable skills they have acquired in many different sectors. Their job titles include Radio Presenter, Charity Administrator, Retail Management Trainee, Copywriter, Language Assistant, Marketing Officer, TV Researcher, Parliamentary Researcher, Press Assistant, Learning Disabilities Key Worker, Informatics Assistant, Recruitment Consultant, Assistant Brand Manager, Audit Associate, HR Assistant, Assistant Export Administrator, Public Relations Account Executive, and Pastoral Support Worker.
