MSc - History and Philosophy of Science

Utrecht University Natural Sciences

Full time September MSc 2 years full time

About the course


History and Philosophy of Science (HPS) offers a unique opportunity to study the foundations, practices, and culture of the sciences and humanities. We combine historical and philosophical perspectives to study past and present science. We investigate the interplay of science with cultural, social, political and institutional factors. We also analyse the fundamental structure of theories such as general relativity, quantum mechanics, evolution, and genetics.

Our topics range from natural science and mathematics to social science and the humanities. We aim to have a global perspective, but the emphasis is on Western science in the last five centuries.
