ENGLISH LITERATURE: - English literature explores human experience and imagination as it has been expressed in written form over more than five centuries. The University is a centre of excellence in creative writing. Professional writers in residence are on hand to provide you with advice and encouragement. PHILOSOPHY: - Philosophy is the systematic attempt to arrive at clear answers to profound questions about issues such as knowledge, life, morality, science and human nature using reason and argument. We host reading parties for students, usually in the Highlands, and have a flourishing undergraduate Philosophy Society.
