    Agreeing with Little Ms Sunshine and Oumansof; and, depends somewhat on the quality of the two lecturers.  However, if there's a clear difference, chose the better course first.

    Otherwise, would suggest psychology first, with some related personal reading in Ben-Ami Scharfstein's "The Philosophers:  Their Lives and the Nature of their Thought" and Paul Johnson's "Intellectuals:  From Marx and Tolstoy to Sartre and Chomsky."

    Edith Stein is/was a brilliant individual.  Would suggest "The Life and Thought of St. Edith Stein" as a bridge between psychology and philosophy, applicable and relevant to both.

    Philosophy of Psychology and the Humanities

    Book by Edith Stein

    "Although this book is written in difficult, technical language, it nevertheless provides the reader with remarkable insights into the nature of the human person and the importance of understanding how communities influence the individual. A worthwhile read for those with patience who are interested in these topics.

    Ask your academic advisor, not a third rate forum overrun with  trolls.

    It would be more beneficial to take psychology first, then philosophy.
