Philosophy-psychology

By combining study at the crossroads of these two disciplines of fundamental importance, the program opens more doors than a degree in philosophy or psychology alone.

The program culminates in a senior seminar in which you’ll be encouraged to integrate your perspectives on both areas of study and present your insights.
