This course provides an exciting, intellectual challenge from the outset. In year one you will study physics, mathematics and philosophical topics such as metaphysics, the theory of knowledge and ethics.
Subsequent years allow you to study the overlap between physics and philosophy in depth. Recent subject areas include the philosophy of science and the foundations and philosophy of physics.
The course gives you the opportunity to develop a physicist's broad range of skills, including problem-solving, numeracy and communication, and to supplement these with a philosopher's ability to rigorously analyse complex texts and form coherent arguments on complex subjects.
You will join a friendly department with a very active, award-winning student society. The course is accredited by the Institute of Physics.
