Here at Saint Leo College the current structure locates religious studies
courses in the Division of Humanities; we offer a major in religious studies,
and also require religious studies courses in our gen. ed. sequence -- these
courses range from Old Testement to Eastern Religions to Religion and
Environmental Ethics. In the new structure of the college, beginning July 1, a
department of philosophy and religious studies (or religious studies and
philosophy -- a hot debate rages) will exist within the Division of Liberal
Arts and Sciences.

There is also a grad program both in History of Science and History of
Medicine at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, WI 53706. It is reputed
to be quite good, though I cannot say from experience.

Dear Ramon--

My name is Kyle Stanford and I am a graduate student at the
University of California, San Diego. We have one of the few
Interdisciplinary programs in the United States that I think is
really geared for your interests. Here we have a Science Studies
Program that attempts to unify approaches from Philosophy, History
and Sociology of Science. I might add that you will find most
straight philosophy departments in this country to be fairly hostile
to your interests in the history of science (with many notable
exceptions). For more info on the program here you may write to
Science Studies Program Office
Humanities and Social Sciences Building
9500 Gilman Drive
La Jolla, CA 92093
If you have no luck at our program, you might investigate similar
programs at Cornell or look into History and Philosophy of Science
Programs (eg. Pittsburgh, Indiana University). Good Luck.

Kyle Stanford
