By combining these two unique disciplines you'll gain an understanding of how:
- our minds develop and function
- we think about our lives, relationships and society
- explore crime and justice, race and gender, politics and religion
- examine emerging areas like environmental and social philosophy
- investigate global philosophical traditions - Western, Indian and Chinese
- social psychology
In year one you'll get a thorough grounding in each subject through a series of compulsory core modules (100 credits). This ensures everyone is familiar with key concepts and practices before you start to specialise in years two and three. You will also be able to choose 20 credits worth of of optional Philosophy modules. In year two you have a free choice of modules split equally between the two subjects (60 credits in each). This allows you to build on existing knowledge or explore a new topic. In year three you will take 120 credits in total but can weight your choices between Philosophy and Psychology depending on the areas you want to specialise in. There’s the opportunity to carry out an extended piece of work through a Philosophy dissertation or a Psychology research project. Placement and volunteering opportunities are available in the School of Humanities, as well as via the Nottingham Advantage Award. You may also spend time overseas through the University of Nottingham Study Abroad programme. Please note this course is not accredited by the British Psychological Society.
