Hello, everyone! I would like to know if the Philosophy and Psychology course at Durham is more focused on Philosophy or on Psychology. The description is not very clear on their website and it says only about philosophy.

So the main question is: At this course, will I study Psychology like I would have attended the simple Psychology course and have some modules from Philosophy or vice versa?

Heya,

If you don't get an answer here I would suggest emailing Durham's admissions dept for clarity, a bit strange that their website is unclear!

Seems pretty clear:
https://www.dur.ac.uk/courses/info/?...#coursecontent
e.g.
"Year 1
In their first year, all students take the Philosophy core modules of Ethics and Values, and Knowledge and Reality. These concern the two broad divisions of Philosophy, into Metaphysics and Theory of Knowledge on the one hand, and Moral Philosophy on the other. Students also take either Introduction to Logic or Reading Philosophy. Reading Philosophy is a text-based course which examines in depth classic works by writers such as Plato, Hume and Sartre
In Psychology, students take a number of comparably core modules."

Also: https://www.dur.ac.uk/resources/facu...works/cv85.pdf

Usually any x AND y course has an equal number of units from both courses. That seems to be the case here too.

Now it's all clear to me! That handbook is truly useful. Thank you a lot!
