Subject description

Psychology

This subject sits between the life sciences and the humanities, with two consequences. First, psychology can, as a discipline, emphasise connections to either the sciences or the humanities. Second, it draws teachers and students whose backgrounds and interests lie both in the humanities and in the sciences.
