Philosophy and Science Minor

This minor allows students to concentrate on issues posed for how we should understand ourselves and our situation, by developments in science.  Logic provides the student with analytical tools which the student will need in such investigations, while the other subjects involve issues concerning the character of scientific knowledge, or problems posed by work in various particular areas of science.


Learning outcomes

Students who complete this major will have the skills and knowledge to: make sense of issues which they subsequently encounter in these and related areas, while at the same time acquiring skills in the presentation and analysis of arguments, which will be of use to them in other academic fields and in real-life situations.
