History and Philosophy of Science


History and Philosophy of Science is currently a minor program at McGill: for details please visit the Undergraduate Program page.

It is designed for both Arts students who wish to explore the world of scientific thought and practice, and for Science students who want to deepen their knowledge of the historical and conceptual evolution of science.

As a venerable scientific institution in its own right, McGill posesses a wealth of historical archives, artifacts, and library collections in the History and Philosophy of Science. In addition, the prestigious Mossmann lecture series bring eminent scholars in this area to McGill every year.
