Info for Prospective Students

HPS is unique in that it offers an interdisciplinary approach to the modern sciences, focusing on their history and their philosophy, which includes their methodology, intellectual, ethical and social aspects, and the ramifications that the sciences have in all fields of human endeavor. 

Our department is small, so we're able to provide an extraordinary level of interaction, often person to person, with undergraduates The advisors and Directors of Undergraduate Studies can see students and address their concerns very quickly, and our faculty members pride themselves on assisting our undergraduates in their decision making and orientation process.
