This interdisciplinary degree allows you to explore three different yet closely related subjects as they relate to a key subject: the nature of the mind. In core modules you’ll interrogate and use the scientific, philosophical and historical methods used to understand what the mind is and how it works. You’ll look at the mechanisms of the brain, childhood development, mental illness, the history of psychology and the possibility of knowledge. You’ll also have the chance to develop your understanding by choosing from a wide range of optional modules reflecting the diverse research interests across the University. They’ll allow you to focus on the topics that interest you such as ethics, or the philosophy of art or religion. Combining philosophy, psychology, the history of ideas and sciences, this varied and exciting degree allows you to explore some of the biggest questions facing humanity – how we think, what we know, how we know it, or whether we can really know anything.
