Teaching

MSc in Philosophy, Mental Health and Psychology.

In 2023-2024, we will be launching a new and exciting MSc, in Philosophy, Mental Health and Psychology. This will involve co-teaching between colleagues in the Department of Philosophy, the School of Psychology, and the Institute for Mental Health at Birmingham. The course is extremely flexible, and students will be able to either specialise in one area, or spread their interests more broadly. It will rest on the University of Birmingham’s world-leading expertise on the boundary of philosophy, psychology, and mental health. It can be used as an entry into a PhD in any of the fields, or as a broad and flexible preparation for a wide range of careers. I designed this course along with colleagues in the School of Psychology, and I’m especially excited about it getting started. For more information, including how to apply, and an opportunity to ask questions, see here.
