The philosophy and history of science degree covers physics, biology, mathematics, logic, medicine and psychology topics. The MA draws on these strengths. It is intended both for students who have a first degree in philosophy who wish to specialise in philosophy and history of science at a higher level, and for individuals with a background in pure science who wish to make a transition to philosophy and history of science or to explore foundational issues within the sciences. This programme emphasizes on philosophical issues arising from specific scientific disciplines, with a particular focus on physics, biology and mathematics. The history of science is studied in terms of the philosophical debate about the nature of scientific method and knowledge.
