Pursuing the Philosophy of Science MSc is a highly rewarding experience. The curriculum covers a fantastically wide range of areas. This allows you to tailor the programme to suit your own interests. For the mathematically inclined, there is ‘Set Theory and Further Logic’ and ‘Rationality and Choice’; for those interested in the natural sciences, there is ‘Einstein for Everyone’ […]

The curriculum allows you to tackle issues from several levels of abstraction – from general questions such as whether our best scientific theories represent reality to whether a specific […]

Studying for the MSc in Philosophy of Science is the best thing I’ve ever done. My experience was life changing. The ideas covered in some of the modules that I took, such as PH400 Philosophy of Science, PH430 Einstein for Everyone, PH427 Genes, Brains & Society, are deep and important. In my view, I may only come to realise […]
