At Hertfordshire we offer a supportive learning environment and the opportunity to study writing in English from every corner of the globe. Our modules explore everything from contemporary children’s stories to eighteenth-century plays, Native American writing to European crime fiction. Our internationally recognised, research-active academic team will guide you in developing your own interests, helping you form fresh opinions and gain powerful, lifelong transferable skills. You’ll also have the opportunity to take a valuable extended work placement or even spend a life-changing year studying abroad as part of your degree. We’re a small, supportive academic community, where every lecturer is an active researcher and every student can get involved with their exciting, diverse work. In the 2017 QS rankings of university departments, our Philosophy team have been rated as one of the 100 best philosophy departments worldwide. With us, you’ll assess the arguments of others and arrive at your own conclusions on deep, important issues. Along the way, you’ll gain skills that last a lifetime and are increasingly valuable as your career grows. You’ll also have the opportunity to study abroad, take a work placement and hear distinguished, international guest speakers. Philosophy at UH is a thriving intellectual community with regular visiting speakers and an optional residential weekend. For more information see the Philosophy website.
