Course Summary:
This is a combined honours course, where you study English Literature alongside Philosophy. The course offers the opportunity to study an exciting range of modules, blending the study of classic texts and literary traditions with current theoretical models for understanding literature as a dynamic, global phenomenon. Philosophy explores the way we think and reason as well as the assumptions that underpin what we think we know about ourselves and the world .Philosophy at Oxford Brookes tackles some of the most exciting and fundamental questions about human nature and our place in the world, such as whether the mind is a computer and if it is rational to believe in God. Our course is renowned for its inspirational teaching and research excellence. In the 2013 National Student Survey (Source: Unistats), 93 per cent of students agreed that staff had made the subject interesting.

In Year 1 modules include Culture, Criticism and Literature, World Literature, Critical Theory, Shakespeare, Introduction to Philosophy, Academic Literacy: Philosophy, Introduction to Ethics, and Theory of Knowledge. In Year 2 modules include American Literature and Culture, The Literature of Space, The Novel and Modernity, Culture, Crime and Transgression, Ancient Greek Philosophy, Early Modern Philosophy, Medieval Philosophy, and Foundations of German Idealism. Final-year specialist optional modules offer intensive, small-group teaching. In addition, you will choose either the Contemporary Literature (Synoptic) module or the Dissertation Module, working one-to-one with a specialist lecturer. In Philosophy, module titles include Philosophy of Mind, Philosophy of Religion, Philosophy of Education, Freedom, Justice and Politics, Continental Philosophy of Religion, Wittgenstein's Later Philosophy, Culture, Gender and Sexuality, and Vice and Virtue.

Oxford Brookes was amazing! The campus was beautiful, really modern and clean, and the facilities there were great. Our course had a good mix of practical applied work and theoretical stuff in lectures, and it really gave me a deep understanding that I could use after my degree. Speaking of, the Careers service was also top notch, and they had loads of stuff going on that helped me walk straight into graduate employment. The student support services were also really comprehensive, with lots of financial and accommodation advice which helped ease my mind a lot.
