What is Psychology, Philosophy and Linguistics?
Philosophy concerns 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.
You apply to study any pair of the three; subject to college approval, you may be permitted to study all three after two terms.

Why study psychology? Because it provides scientific answers to basic questions about how people act, react, and interact.
Modern Languages and Linguistics
In this course, students study one modern language together with linguistics, the study of language itself. One half of your course will be half of the Modern Languages course as described on the Modern Languages course page, giving you practical linguistic training and an extensive introduction to the literature and thought of the European language you have chosen. The other half of the course will introduce you to the analysis of the nature and structure of human language.
Philosophy, Politics and Economics (PPE)
If you find the political and economic world a fascinating but puzzling place, and if, more broadly, you want to understand how and why (we think) we know what we seem to know about that world, then PPE is probably for you.
