The two-year (120 EC) master’s programme History and Philosophy of Science (HPS) encompasses the history and philosophy of the natural sciences, humanities, social sciences, medicine, and mathematics. The historical approach focuses on the development of scientific thought and practice in times past, including the relations between science and cultural, social or institutional features at particular times and places. By suitably choosing their courses, students can put together a programme that emphasizes either the history or the philosophy of any specific branch of science as well as interdisciplinary aspects.
