Course summary

This one-year taught graduate course offers graduate education in philosophy of physics of the highest possible quality, and aims to provide a foundation on which you can go on to pursue doctoral work in the area. It is likely to be of particular interest for candidates whose background is in physics rather than in philosophy and it presumes an undergraduate-level physics education. This course consists of core courses in the philosophy of physics and philosophy of science and one elective subject. You are examined on the basis of four essays. Tuition is offered in the form of one-to-one supervisions, lectures and classes. MSt in Philosophy of Physics graduates usually progress to the second year of Oxford's BPhil in Philosophy or to doctoral programmes, either at the faculty itself or elsewhere. Some, however, have pursued non-philosophical academic careers, or careers outside academia. The faculty aims to assist students and graduates in securing academic jobs. The faculty appoints a Placement Officer who, in conjunction with the Assistant Graduate Officer, runs the faculty’s placement scheme. The Placement Officer helps job applicants with the preparation of their CVs, provides advice about the presentation of material in an application dossier, arranges practice interviews and generally attends the Eastern Division meeting of the American Philosophical Association to support candidates who have interviews there.
