Explore the big questions and the works of English literature that have engaged people for centuries by studying our BA (Hons) Philosophy and English Literature degree in Cambridge.
Study Philosophy and English literature together and learn to make your point of view stand out with substance, as well as style.
You'll consider big questions such as 'Who are we?', 'What can we know?', and 'What should we do to lead worthwhile lives?' and discover how great minds have tried to answer them.
Alongside this, you'll explore how English literature is shaped by its historical and cultural context, and how, in turn, it influences readers and society. In doing this, you'll also explore other subjects such as history, politics, religion, psychology and history of art.
Your studies will be supported by our expert lecturers, who offer one-to-one tutoring and personalised feedback. This support helped our philosophy courses rank first in the UK in the National Student Survey 2020, and top in the UK for "Satisfied with Feedback' (The Guardian University Guide 2021).
