Program Handbook

The History and Philosophy of Science (HPS) Graduate Minor program offers students the opportunity to deepen their understanding of the philosophical, conceptual, social, ethical, and political dimensions of science, technology and medicine. The program allows students to explore science in other historical and cultural contexts, examining how the character of scientific knowledge and the organization of scientific investigation have changed over time. Students also explore the origins, structure, and possible limitations of the concepts, theories, and practices fundamental to their scientific research fields.
