The disciplines of Philosophy and Psychology have always closely interacted and informed each other. Psychologists who study the fundamental nature of the mind adopt the questions of philosophers, and also share some of the concerns of philosophers regarding the best methods to study the mind. Philosophers who study the mind rely upon the insights and discoveries of psychologists. For decades, the interaction between these disciplines has been one of the most important and fruitful sources of interdisciplinary scholarship.
Oswego's unique joint major program in Philosophy and Psychology is in the forefront of meeting student needs in this domain of interdisciplinary study. The program is dedicated to the idea that work at the interface of these two disciplines is of fundamental importance to both disciplines and to the questions they seek to answer.
Our faculty are internationally recognized researchers and teachers. We have an active community of scholarship where students are welcome and encouraged to participate.
Along with a well-rounded understanding of both the disciplines of Psychology and Philosophy, training in the Philosophy-Psychology Program will provide students with:
- Strong critical reasoning abilities
- Experience applying logic and statistics
- Laboratory experience
- Training in a wide range of different kinds of writing
Majors and Programs
Oswego's major in Philosophy-Psychology encompasses both disciplines and how they interrelate, synthesizing two different perspectives of human understanding and creating a wider basis for effective thinking. It requires a central core of courses in philosophy and psychology, advanced studies that interrelate the two, and a senior seminar taught by both a philosopher and a psychologist.
