History & Philosophy of Science (HPS)

Michael Ma Er Atalanta Fugiens 1618 Embl Me Xxi

HPS is a five-year Ph.D. program that admits students on three tracks:

  • History
  • Philosophy
  • Theology

Students admitted on one of these tracks will receive their degrees in HPS, but will pursue a course of study that overlaps significantly with that of a Ph.D. student in History, Philosophy, or Theology, and will have an advisor drawn from one of those departments. Graduates of our program are fully trained historians, philosophers, or theologians, with additional expertise in the intersection between the sciences and those disciplines.

In addition to our Ph.D. program, we also offer a concurrent M.A. and a graduate minor for students enrolled in other doctoral programs at Notre Dame.

Further details on all our degrees can be found here.
