HPS+: History, Philosophy and Culture of Science

The MA study programme HPS+: History, Philosophy and Culture of Science offers interdisciplinarity, internationality, closeness to research and problem-orientation. Follwing the structure of successful HPS study courses in the international academic field, the Master programme HPS+ has started at the Ruhr-Universität Bochum in winter term 2018/2019.

Science is the signum of the modern world. Scientific knowledge and its proper philosophical and historical analysis shape the contemporary understanding of the world we live in. The new MA programme HPS+ aims at a problem-oriented reflection of the numerous dimensions a modern knowledge-based society faces. HPS+ combines study perspectives from philosophy of science, history, cultural and social studies.
