EDUCATIONAL AIMS OF PROGRAMME

The Joint Programme in English and Philosophy is designed to provide students with an intellectual training in the disciplines of English and Philosophy which, while discrete subjects, are also complementary and mutually enriching. It is designed to provide students with:

• a discipline-specific perspective enabling the acquisition of knowledge and understanding of the inter-relationship between texts and contexts, a familiarity with debates surrounding culture and identity, both individual and communal, and skills in synthesising and developing ideas and arguments from diverse literary and philosophical sources;

• a range of skills which together foster the ability to practise self-motivated learning and increase the capacity to undertake independent learning in a progressive way.

Together, these subjects together equip individuals with the ability to:

• think critically, process and understand complex information;

• evaluate primary and secondary sources;

• interpret a variety of types of data and information;

• pursue independent learning;

• work well in groups and formulate arguments.

Furthermore, students benefit from a multi-disciplinary education that gives them a large skill set and opens a wide range of career options following graduation.

The curricula will be delivered in accordance with the national English and Philosophy benchmarking statements: in English, these reflect the chronological, cultural, and generic diversity of English literary and language studies, drawing, where applicable, on the unique character of Northern Ireland, and taking advantage of a variety of critical and pedagogical approaches; in Philosophy, these standards reflect the distinctive aims and methods of a philosophical education together with its characteristic subject-matter.

More generally, the Joint Programme in English and Philosophy aims to:

• attract students from local, national, and international contexts, through a variety of entry routes, and deliver the best possible learning and teaching experience in an environment of equality, tolerance, and mutual respect;

• provide students with the necessary intellectual, practical, and key skills to enable them to develop as independent, reflective lifelong learners and able employees;

• develop a broad context for future employment, in which graduates appreciate the continuing value of an education in these two disciplines.

The programme will thereby foster an atmosphere of intellectual inquiry in each discipline, by offering modules that encourage a stimulating interchange of ideas.

LEARNING OUTCOMES

Learning Outcomes: Cognitive Skills

On the completion of this course successful students will be able to:

recognise and appreciate the varying effects of different literary and linguistic forms of expression;

respond to, and differentiate between, different ideological and theoretical positions;

analyse and interpret material from different geographical, cultural, and temporal contexts;

think independently, originally, and self-reflexively;

demonstrate a capacity for critical reflection and judgment in the light of evidence and argument;

discriminate between substantive and peripheral concerns in their understanding of literary and linguistic issues;

identify, collate and organise relevant data and information from a variety of primary and secondary sources in support of their argument;

understand complex tasks and an ability to present appropriate solutions in written form;

work autonomously, manifested in self-direction, objective-setting, prioritising and time-management;

reflect on their own learning, seeking and making use of constructive feedback;

produce intellectually coherent academic analysis within word limits and time deadlines;

apply requisite referencing and presentation formats in the production of written analyses;

Teaching/Learning Methods and Strategies

Class discussion in which analysis and interpretation of texts takes place allows the students to develop a comparative understanding of different approaches to material. It allows for both tutor- and student-led opportunities for the discussion and comprehension of directed reading and secondary source information.
Analytical literary-critical exercises – both formative and summative – test students’ ability to engage with, contextualise, and interpret texts. The ability to collate and obtain information is developed through introductory training in the use of libraries and online resources.
Extended essays test their ability to order and shape information, and to recognise ways in which the presentation and prioritisation of material is conducive to its rhetorical effect.
In all modules, students are encouraged to refer to current critical and theoretical debate in order to form their own judgement of the text or data in question. They work towards a number of deadlines for formative and summative work, and for class presentation, thereby learning to prioritise assignments and objectives, and in doing so hone their time management skills.

Methods of Assessment

Progress through the degree is one in which the autonomous learning undertaken by students is gradually increased, from lecture/tutorial based teaching at stages 1 and 2, to student-centred learning, through 2- or 3-hour seminars, at stage 3.
Extended essays and the dissertation test students’ ability to order and shape information, and to recognise ways in which the presentation and prioritisation of material is conducive to its rhetorical effect. In all modules, students are encouraged to refer to current critical and theoretical debate in order to form their own judgement of the text or data in question.
Class discussion, in which analysis and interpretation of texts takes place, allows students to develop a comparative understanding of different approaches to material.
Analytical literary-critical exercises – both formative and summative – test students’ ability to engage with, contextualise, and interpret texts.
The dissertation, examinations and essays require students to demonstrate coverage of material, appropriate methods of analysis, the ability to discriminate between arguments, and the ability to form an independent argument.

Feedback is provided for each type and instance of assessment and students may seek dedicated feedback sessions with course tutors.
The Personal Tutor system facilitates student reflection upon academic performance and assists in developing strategies for improvement.

synthesise diverse primary evidence and subsequent academic comment;

discriminate between what is central and what is peripheral to the issue in question;

evaluate sources critically in their context;

make judgements on the basis of varied and problematic evidence and according to the persuasiveness of the arguments or the reliability of the evidence used;

produce intellectually coherent academic analysis under time-managed conditions and within word limits;

able to identify, solve and resolve or dissolve conceptual problems;

synthesise relevant information and exercise critical judgement, primarily through essay writing;

structure, manage, and adapt strategies for self-directed independent research.

Teaching/Learning Methods and Strategies

Teaching on the Honours Programme in Philosophy takes place in formal lectures, small group tutorials, and seminars, many of which will be enhanced by electronic media, including the facilities of Canvas, and through the writing of formative and summative assessments.

Lectures and tutorials together provide knowledge and the opportunity to discuss, evaluate and apply that knowledge to philosophical concepts. They also provide specific contextual and theoretical information as well as offering practical examples of different critical approaches.

Seminars offer a variety of tutor-led and student-led learning opportunities as well as a more sustained opportunity to debate and evaluate a breadth of knowledge gained independently from directed reading and from the sharing of resources and information.

Dissertation work is a programme of independent study agreed between student and supervisor, leading. All these assessment methods require students to demonstrate the subject skills which are detailed to the writing and submission of an extended essay/thesis.

Methods of Assessment

Assessment is by a variety of traditional and innovative methods, including timed unseen written examinations, essays, individual and group presentations, and seminar and tutorial reports and contributions.

Analytical, discursive, interpretive and critical exercises - both formative and summative - test students' ability to engage with, analyse, contextualise, interpret and criticise relevant material.

While these teaching and assessment methods deliver information to students and test their knowledge of that information in each subject, students are encouraged to assimilate and apply knowledge of both disciplines discretely to become independent, self-reflective learners.

Learning Outcomes: Knowledge & Understanding

On the completion of this course successful students will be able to:

display a broad knowledge of a range of periods in literary history, including literature before 1660, and an understanding of the social and political contexts in which texts are both written and read;

exhibit an awareness of major structural levels of linguistic organisation in speech and writing;

demonstrate familiarity with major periods in the development of the English language and of contexts of language production and variation;

Teaching/Learning Methods and Strategies

Knowledge and understanding are developed through lectures, tutorials, seminar (many of which will be enhanced by learning aids such as hand-outs, and key readings available online through Canvas) and through the assessment and feedback process.

Lectures and tutorials together provide knowledge and the opportunity to discuss, evaluate and apply that knowledge to texts.

Seminars offer the more sustained opportunity to debate and evaluate a breadth of knowledge gained independently from directed reading and from the sharing of resources and information.

Extensive background reading is required throughout the pathway, developing students' specialist knowledge of particular genres and periods of literature in addition to a broad base of knowledge about literary history.

Methods of Assessment

Assessment is by a variety of traditional and innovative methods, including timed unseen written examinations, essays, individual and group presentations, and seminar and tutorial reports and contributions.

Analytical, discursive, interpretive and critical exercises - both formative and summative - test students' ability to engage with, analyse, contextualise, interpret and criticise relevant material.

Teaching/Learning Methods and Strategies

Teaching on the Honours Programme in Philosophy takes place in formal lectures, small group tutorials, and seminars, many of which will be enhanced by electronic media, including the facilities of Canvas and through the writing of formative and summative assessments. More specifically:

Lectures and tutorials together provide knowledge and the opportunity to discuss, evaluate and apply that knowledge to philosophical concepts. They also provide specific contextual and theoretical information as well as offering practical examples of different critical approaches.

Seminars offer a variety of tutor-led and student-led learning opportunities as well as a more sustained opportunity to debate and evaluate a breadth of knowledge gained independently from directed reading and from the sharing of resources and information.

Group presentations are used to encourage students to pursue their own interests, collaborate with peers, negotiate the demands of teamwork and develop their understanding of a topic.

Dissertation work is a programme of independent study agreed between student and supervisor, leading to the writing and submission of an extended essay (thesis).

Methods of Assessment

Assessment is by a variety of traditional and innovative methods, including timed unseen written examinations, essays, individual and group presentations, and seminar and tutorial reports and contributions.

Formative written work assists the development of understanding, critical judgment, and independent thought, both through the feedback given, and through the process of writing itself.

Analytical, discursive, interpretive and critical exercises - both formative and summative - test students' ability to engage with, analyse, contextualise, interpret and criticise relevant material.

All these assessment methods require students to demonstrate the subject skills which are detailed in each School's criteria for marking undergraduate work.

While these teaching and assessment methods deliver information to students and test their knowledge of that information in each subject, students are encouraged to assimilate and apply knowledge of both disciplines discretely to become independent, self-reflective learners.
