Philosophy and Psychology - Keele University

At Keele University, we’re different. Nestled in 600 acres of countryside in the heart of the UK, we have a big campus but a small and cosmopolitan community. We’re proud to be ‘University of the Year for Student Experience’ in The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2017, in addition to having been ranked No.1 in the National Student Survey 2014-2016. This is because it’s more than green and lovely, it’s a place of research and academic excellence too. At Keele, studying a combined honours degree will include some modules from both of the single honours degrees. In this case, your programme will be made up of a combination of modules from both Philosophy and Psychology. You will be introduced to philosophical topics about knowledge, ethics, language and the nature of the mind and world from both historical and contemporary perspectives. You will learn reasoning skills, how to evaluate arguments and be encouraged to present and defend your own views. Second year modules include the Philosophy of Mind and Philosophy of Science, which specifically address philosophical questions concerning psychology. In psychology, you will learn about what the latest psychology research, including studies published by our own friendly and approachable staff, tells us about human behaviour from social, developmental, biological and cognitive perspectives. We will show you how to design and conduct your own psychological studies in our well-equipped laboratories, using a range of techniques including interviews, surveys and experiments. You will also learn about how our understanding of psychology changes over time. Philosophy and psychology teach a wide range of research and problem-solving skills which are highly valued by employers. Keele Philosophy and Psychology has an excellent graduate recruitment record. Graduates in Philosophy and Psychology have gone on to many different careers, including teaching, the law, financial services, computer programming, artificial intelligence research, advertising, government, publishing, the media and the arts, as well as going on to further study. The course is accredited by the British Psychological Society, enabling you to access training and careers in professional psychology, such as clinical psychology, forensic psychology, and educational psychology (subject to meeting the BPS criteria).
