Department of Psychology
Philosophy concerns every aspect of our lives, practical as well as theoretical. It is about making sense of our lives and the world around us. Due to its grounding in fundamental human concerns and activities,Philosophy enables us to understand life and to shape it. In studying philosophy, you will engage with the ideas of the most important thinkers of the past and present, including Plato, Aristotle, Descartes, Kant, Nietzsche and Sartre. You will learn to think more clearly and independently, to communicate your ideas and arguments with greater clarity and force, and develop skills valued by employers.
Psychology is a multi-disciplinary, fascinating subject covering all aspects of human behaviour. It is concerned with individual psychological processes and the social context of how we think and interact with the world around us. Psychologists use scientific methods, such as observation, experiments and statistical analysis to explore all aspects of our behaviour to understand how and why we react in the ways that we do. Our degree programmes cover all elements of psychological study from early childhood,neuropsychology and forensic to counselling, psychotherapy and abnormal psychology.
