Course summary

Psychology, philosophy and linguistics are closely interrelated disciplines, so studying a combination of them allows students to explore different aspects of each subject resulting in a very varied and dynamic course. Psychology addresses such questions as: how do we perceive colours? How do children acquire language? What predisposes two people to get on with each other? What causes schizophrenia? Philosophy is concerned with a wide range of questions including ethics, knowledge and the nature of mind. Linguistics is the study of language in all its aspects, including the structure of languages, meaning (semantics), pronunciation, and how people understand, mentally represent and generate language.
