The School of Philosophy, Psychology and Language Sciences is pleased to be launching three new programmes for September 2017.
This exciting new programme looks at all aspects of social phenomena, such as: Why do we become attached to a particular person? How do relationship dynamics change over time? Does objectifying women lead to their mistreatment? When is gender made relevant in and for politics? Does self-modesty differ between cultures? How does economic inequality affect self-perception? What identities are invoked in interview interactions?
This interdisciplinary programme studies the typical and atypical development of children and young people, addressing issues such as how do children learn to reason in increasingly abstract ways? How do they learn language with such remarkable speed and fluidity? How do they use those reasoning and language skills to help them explain and understand people’s behaviour and emotions?
This flexible online programme brings together world leaders in the fields of philosophy, science and theology to provide you with a thorough grounding in the relationship between science and religion. This includes: key scientific developments in areas such as quantum mechanics, evolutionary biology, and neuroscience; fundamental theological issues, such as creation, evil, and the soul; and the philosophical analytical tools needed to understand the relationship between them.
