Course summary

Combining philosophy, psychology, and the history of science, this varied and interesting degree allows you to explore the most fundamental questions about our minds. You’ll study these different yet closely related specialisms and how they relate to the nature of the mind. By utilising scientific, philosophical, and historical methods you'll understand what the mind is and how it works. Optional and compulsory modules will allow you to examine the mechanisms of the brain, childhood development, mental illness, the history of psychology and the relationship between the mind and the brain. You can develop your understanding of the world even further by choosing from a wide range of optional modules reflecting the diverse research interests across the University. This enables you to focus on wide-ranging topics that interest you such as ethics, the philosophy of art or religion.
