Philosophy of Psychology

This programme is for students with an undergraduate philosophy degree and to those converting to philosophy from another subject (for instance, psychology) at undergraduate level. For philosophy graduates, it will consolidate and augment their existing knowledge, with a special emphasis on philosophy of psychology and philosophy of mind, and it will provide a firm foundation for subsequent independent research in this area. For conversion students, there is a General Philosophy module which is designed specifically to introduce them to key texts, concepts and arguments from right across the philosophical spectrum: by means of this module, in conjunction with their more specialised studies in the philosophy of psychology, such students will also be prepared for further research.

Entry requirements

A minimum 2.1 (or equivalent) Honours degree in philosophy or any other field (which may but need not be psychology); conversion students should show evidence of an interest in and aptitude for the subject.

Assessment methods

Assessment is through coursework, examination and a dissertation.
