Course overview

Psychology is a sophisticated and diverse subject which employs an impressive range of research tools. The subject includes studies of the brain, the different ways that we perceive the world and the effects of social and cultural influences on people’s behaviour. Psychology includes subjects as diverse as social interaction, learning, child development, schizophrenia and information processing. Philosophy is concerned with a wide range of questions including ethics, knowledge and the nature of mind. Linguistics is the study of language in all its aspects, including the structure of languages, meaning (semantics), how children learn language, pronunciation, and how people understand, mentally represent and generate language.
