Department of History and Philosophy of Science


History and Philosophy of Science is available as an option for students in their second, third and fourth year at Cambridge.

On these pages you will find an introduction to the subject, answers to some frequently asked questions, and an outline of the different routes into HPS.

For information about applying to Cambridge, please see the University's Undergraduate Admissions website.

I enjoyed every minute of working in this friendly, supportive and vibrant department. HPS has something for everyone and I thoroughly recommend it.
