Course summary

Philosophy and psychology seek to answer profound questions about ourselves and our place in the social and physical universe. In this degree you'll investigate a range of philosophical debates about ethics, justice, scientific knowledge, religion, art, and the self. You'll cover the core approaches in social, cognitive and developmental psychology, and some applied aspects of professional practice. You’ll learn to read and understand scientific and philosophical texts; use different research methods; communicate clearly and logically; and work and think independently. **Key features of the course**- Investigate profound questions about human minds and behaviour from two complementary perspectives.- Engage with current research and discover how both psychologists and philosophers address pressing, real-life issues.- Learn how to evaluate evidence, construct well-informed arguments and present your conclusions convincingly.- Develop valuable transferable skills that are highly prized in the workplace, including skills in communication, problem-solving, numeracy and self-management.
