UCL is the only university offering these single honours degrees. Our programmes study how scientific knowledge is created and used. They allow you to combine a passion for science with an interdisciplinary approach to the study of the humanities and social sciences.
BSc Science and Society - UCAS U80 L391
- science policy, ethics, and governance
- science communication, engagement and evaluation
- sociology of modern science and technology
BSc History and Philosophy of Science - UCAS U80 V550
- the history of science, technology, and medicine from antiquity to the 20th century
- the philosophy of science and medicine
- integrated history and philosophy of science (a thriving discipline that we helped invent!)
How to apply
Which degree should I choose?
You only need to apply for one of our programmes. Students on both degrees take a common first year. If you find that you want to transfer to the other programme at the end of the first year, we can arrange this easily.
Visit our student views page to find out what our current students and alumni think of the programmes and the department.
Our degrees prepare you for a wide variety of careers. Our alumni are working in diverse fields such as law, media, academia, museums, banking, and the civil service. Visit our careers page for more information.

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.
