Department of Philosophy, Sociology, Education and Applied Psychology

The Department brings together scholars from various fields with the aim of developing interdisciplinary analyses of human experience in social contexts. Research topics mainly cover inter-cultural problems, analysis of social, educational and psychological processes, and individual choices and practices in sociocultural and historical contexts, with due consideration of basic underlying values.
Recognising the importance of merging forms of knowledge, the Department values its disciplinary traditions, and promotes theoretical and empirical research spanning from individual to societal concerns. It also coordinates several degree courses, PhD programmes, specialised courses and masters.
