**Why study Philosophy and English Literature at UWTSD Lampeter?**
Â¥ Philosophy explores the big questions â Who are we? What is our place in the world? How should we live? What is reality? Philosophy approaches such questions through argument, vision and imagination.
Â¥ Philosophy is different from other academic disciplines in that it teaches you not what to think, but how to think, challenging one's beliefs and assumptions about the world.
Â¥ This degree combines a commitment to the large historical picture of English studies (from Beowulf to Tom Wolfe) with the study of key philosophical ideas from the Ancient World to the modern day, exploring ideas of identity, agency and representation.
Â¥ We take an immersive approach to learning offering a diverse range of teaching approaches, including lectures, seminars, tutorials and workshop sessions.
Â¥ You will attend small-group classes with a focus on discussion and learning activities to encourage the self-development and critical reflection accepted as key to the development of personal and professional capacities.
Taking into account that student choices and requirements can differ radically, as well as ensuring a rounded knowledge of Philosophy and English generally, the scheme offers modules covering a wide range of topics and issues. Some of the areas of study include, for example, ethics, self and identity, knowledge and reality, equality, justice, existentialism, animal ethics, political philosophy, environmental issues, freedom, Buddhist philosophy, and the history of ideas. Other areas of study include the Renaissance, contemporary writing, romantic poetry and prose, medieval literature, and archiving. Options to study abroad may also be available.
** A range of modules in other disciplines is offered alongside your main subject modules. You could take modules in, for example, history, classics, creative writing or any of our other humanities subjects, whichever humanities degree-programme you choose.
The programme is assessed in a variety of ways and will include several of the following types of assessment: essays of 1000 to 4000 words in length, document analyses, book reviews, short reports and reflective journals, timed tests, take-homeâ exams, field journals, posters, group and individual presentations, dissertations of 10,000 words, wikis, commentaries and film evaluations.
