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.
