University of East Anglia UEA

Philosophy and Literature

This programme offers a 1-year interdisciplinary course in the 2 subjects, and explores the deep links between them at many levels. Students can choose from a wide range of modules in both subjects, while sharing a research workshop and core units jointly taught by philosophers and literary specialists. This makes the MA a genuinely joint degree, and not 1 in which the 2 subjects are only taught in parallel.

Entry requirements

Good Honours degree at minimum 2.1 standard or equivalent required. All applicants who are not a British national and/or whose 1st language is not English will need to demonstrate a suitable level of English language proficiency. This is equivalent to an IELTS 7.0 overall, with a minimum of 6.0 in all components and 7.0 in writing, although we do accept many other types of qualifications or tests. In accordance with the UK Border Agencies Tier 4 visa guidelines, we will also waive the English language requirement for applicants who meet the defined nationality test or who have completed a degree level course in 1 of the listed countries. For a full list of these, as well as the qualifications / tests that we will consider, please visit our website.
