English and Philosophy support each other in looking at what it means to be human:

  • What do we feel? And is it right to feel that way?
  • What is society like? And what should it be like?

Both of these subjects at Nottingham are especially diverse in what they cover:

  • English - language, literature and drama from Old English to the present day
  • Philosophy - traditional topics such as ethics and philosophy of mind alongside emerging areas like environmental and social philosophy

You'll study each subject separately but equally. Choice of specialised modules means you'll be able to deepen your knowledge and follow your passions.
