The Centre for the Study of Perceptual Experience in conjunction with the Philosophy Subject and the School of Psychology at the University of Glasgow are delighted to announce their new MSc degree course in Philosophy of Mind and Psychology. We are now accepting applications for entry in September 2019.

This Masters in Philosophy of Mind and Psychology is an interdisciplinary programme that is ideal for students interested in studying the mind from both philosophical and psychological perspectives. Students will study specific topics and research methods in both philosophy and psychology courses, and write a thesis on a relevant topic with a supervisor in one of these disciplines. Students will also participate in the ongoing PPN (Philosophy, Psychology, Neuroscience) speaker series, including in special sessions where guest speakers meet with students in this program to discuss their research projects. Given our research strengths and the affiliated Centre for the Study of Perceptual Experience, students interested in issues pertaining to perception will be especially attracted to this programme. The Centre also hosts a Virtual Reality Lab.

Courses on offer include:

  • Philosophy of Mind
  • Visual Perception and Cognition
  • Social Robotics
  • Philosophy Research Methods
  • Research Methods in Cognitive Science
