Welcome to the History and Philosophy of Science Graduate Program at Notre Dame
Our doctoral program offers graduate-level instruction leading to a discipline-based HPS Ph.D. Students in our distinctive, inter-departmental program are also fully trained in philosophy, history, or theology.
We also offer a concurrent master’s degree and a graduate minor to students enrolled in other Notre Dame Ph.D. programs.
Our faculty members are drawn from a variety of departments including history, philosophy, theology, english, and the program of liberal studies. Our students come from a wide range of backgrounds in the humanities and sciences, and take their HPS expertise on into positions in academia and elsewhere (see our alumni page, under 'HPS People').
