About this course

Is there a god? What is morality? What does it mean to be human? On this joint honours course you’ll examine big concepts like these from both philosophical and literary perspectives, enriching your appreciation of each discipline in the process. You’ll broaden your knowledge and understanding with a year spent at a university abroad.

You’ll have the freedom to pursue your own interests in subjects as varied as scriptwriting and Islamic philosophy.

In your degree you can:

  • learn about philosophical questions such as ethics, reason and responsibility

  • explore philosophy and literature through diverse times and places, from Viking to Victorian eras, from Eastern to African settings

  • study themes like the Islamic Golden Age, classical Indian philosophy, and holocaust literature

  • study abroad at one of our partner institutions

  • explore contested narratives, for example, race and culture in American literature

At Southampton you’ll learn in small groups in a relaxed and friendly environment. You'll benefit from the expertise of academic staff whose research feeds directly into the course content.

You can take modules from other disciplines such as anthropology or psychology, studying a language, or choosing from a range of cross-disciplinary modules.
