Program Overview

In the Minor in History and Philosophy of Science program, you’ll develop a broad understanding of technology and how it has evolved over time, study significant medical developments and learn about ethical and historical issues related to fundamental areas of science such as biology, chemistry and the health sciences. The interdisciplinary nature of this program means you’ll be able to expand on your major and choose from a wide variety of courses offered by our different schools. With the guidance of the program director, you can tailor your experience to fit your specific interests, drawing from diverse subjects such as evolution, bioethics, anthropology and psychology.
