The Departments of History and Philosophy jointly offer programs leading to the degrees of BA, BA Honours, and Minor in the History and Philosophy of Science. These programs build on particular research and teaching strengths in philosophy, history and classics at the University of Calgary and also draw on course offerings in the humanities, the natural and social sciences.
A degree in History and Philosophy of Science provides students with a strong background in the conceptual, methodological and historical aspects of science. The UofC HPS program emphasizes a broad understanding of the history of science and medicine as well as an understanding of the philosophical issues that underpin science, such as the nature of scientific explanation and the relation between evidence and hypothesis.
We seek excellent students (from Canada and abroad), who are highly motivated and have a great interest in interdisciplinary subjects. The UofC HPS program has strong links to the STS program, the History of Medicine and Health Care program and Greek and Roman Studies.
