Leeds: MA in Science, History and Society

Applications are now being accepted for 2023 entry onto the MA programme
in Science, History and Society at the University of Leeds.

The MA -- which can be taken full-time (1 year) or part-time (2 years)
-- introduces students to the field's major interpretative debates and
the skills needed to undertake first-rate research. A wide range of
optional modules, including a work placement module in partnership with
national and Leeds-based organizations from heritage, culture and the
third sector, enables students to tailor the programme to their
particular interests and ambitions.

A recent student wrote: “The compulsory modules were the perfect
introduction to the skills and chief debates in the subject for someone
who has not studied the field in-depth before.  The main selling point
and the reason why I decided to do this programme in the first place was
the external placement module and it didn't disappoint. The experience
was wonderful. It broadened my horizons and showed me how history is
used in practice and what career paths other than academia look like. I
enjoyed the research a great deal, the guidance for it was perfect and
it kept my enthusiasm for the course overall very high. I feel like this
was the most useful and educational module I have taken in my whole
life. The atmosphere within the school was also very welcoming. The
teachers treated us as colleagues, as fellow academics, and I never felt
like I couldn't ask a question or discuss a particular topic.”

More information about the Leeds Centre for History and Philosophy of
Science, based in the School of Philosophy, Religion and History of
Science, can be found at

Prospective students are very welcome to visit; just email me at to make the arrangements.  Please also feel free
to send me any questions you may have about the MA, or about the
possibility of doing an MA by Research in history and philosophy of science.

Thank you!
