Students have to take the 'flagship' module, 'Philosophy and Literature', co-taught by a philosopher and a literary theorist. In addition, students must take two further modules. Please see website for details.
The other three modules are to be taken from a list of approved modules in other literature schools.
While it is recommended that full-time students take three modules in each semester, it is up to the student.
Students must then complete the dissertation by the end of August, and this will be worth 30 credits.
