Course Summary:
This Joint Honours course enables you to study Comparative Literature and Culture and Philosophy in equal parts. It willl provide you with the opportunity to combine the study of global literature, film and art, with philosophy, developing you as a culturally-aware, creative and adaptable thinker, with impressive communication and presentation skills. Comparative Literature and Culture offers you the opportunity to study a fascinating breadth of material with a focus on contexts – places, periods, and genres – to explore how key cultural shifts transform how we see, represent, and make sense of our changing world. You can choose from an exceptionally wide range of fascinating options, spanning continents and centuries, from antiquity to the present day, covering novels, poetry, philosophy, cinema and art. You will read, watch, and compare texts from Ancient Greece to contemporary New York, from Cuba to Korea, from epics to crime fiction, and from tragedy to the avant-garde. Comparative Literature and Culture also enables you to study a varety of foreign texts originally written in many languages, all translated into English. At Royal Holloway we have a unique approach to Philosophy that looks beyond the narrow confines of the Anglo-American analytic or the European tradition of philosophy focus on both traditions, their relationship and connections between them. The result has been the creation of a truly interdisciplinary and collaborative programme that brings together academic staff from departments across the university. With the opportunity to examine (amongst other things) the mind and consciousness, aesthetics and morals, the self and others, the range of subjects available to Philosophy students at Royal Holloway guarantees that there will be something on offer that really engages you during your time with us. You will be taught by world-class experts who genuinely want to get to know you. We create a supportive environment, often using group work so you can try out new ideas and participate in lively discussions. Throughout your studies, you will receive personal guidance to ensure your course is aligned to your strengths, interests and career plans. As part of our close-knit international community you will be able to get involved with an array of cultural initiatives that take place on campus, and make the most of being within easy reach of London and its many events and attractions.

The staff were seriously amazing, I’ve never felt so well supported and encouraged by teachers before. The union was also very friendly and dedicated to representing and helping students, with great services available. In terms of nightlife, you can grab a nice pint in Egham or on campus, or head out to Windsor or into London for clubbing. But it's a pretty quiet place - definitely don't come here for a party, but that's not everyone's style.
