Course content

This is a new interdisciplinary degree that allows you to combine study of philosophy with any or all of three arts disciplines. Warwick has been a home for interdisciplinary work in philosophy and literature since the early days of the university, and this new degree is the successor to Warwick’s long-standing MA in Philosophy and Literature.

The degree is designed to take advantage of Warwick’s strengths across Philosophy, English and Comparative Literary Studies, History of Art, and Film and Television Studies. Warwick has excellent research strength in all of these areas, and it also has lively scholarly interaction across these fields, especially through the programming of the Centre for Research in Philosophy, Literature and the Arts. On this programme, you will participate in this intellectual community, pursue advanced study in two or more disciplines, and address questions about philosophy and the arts that speak to students’ individual interests.

A first degree in philosophy is not required for you to study on this programme. However, some grounding in theoretical study of one or more arts is essential.
