Literature and Medicine
The course places strong emphasis on individual initiative and independent research; it is designed to appeal to humanities graduates and healthcare professionals alike.
Good Honours degree (2.1 or above) in a humanities discipline with a literary component, e.g. English; modern languages; biblical studies; or a medical degree; or a nursing or a social work qualification; or relevant equivalent qualification; there is a qualifying exam for those without minimum qualifications.
In core modules students explore what kind of ground the 2 disciplines might share and how they might enrich 1 another; students study and debate the methodological preconditions of what constitutes genuine interdisciplinarity; they also take part in a weekly seminar in which a practitioner in the field describes the approach(es) they have developed to bring the 2 disciplines into dialogue with 1 another.
AHRC; Graduate School and School of Arts and Humanities scholarships; overseas Research Students (ORS) Award Scheme.
