- intensive study of the specialisms of your choice, combining practical skills development with intellectually exciting discovery

- science communication, engagement and evaluation
- sociology of modern science and technology
UCAS U80 V550 History and Philosophy of Science

Flexibility and variety
Our degrees balance variety with intensive study. We want you to explore. We also want to prepare you for a variety of carer options, including graduate study, law, finance, policy, communications, and many, many more. Our dedicated careers tutors offer personal guidance, and we have many success stories (link).
Sometimes students enter one of our degrees but find themselves drawn passionately to the other. No problem. Transfer between the two is easy because the first year paths are identical.
Small department; tremendous energy
At any one time, our department includes 50-60 undergraduates, spread over three years of study. We also have many MSc and PhD students. We are all located in one building on the lovely Gordon Square.
We have 15 core academic staff, whom you will routinely encounter in the department.
Classes tend to be small, and we pride ourselves on the outstanding quality of our teaching, as well as research. We win awards for the work we do.
