History and Philosophy of Science Program

The HPS Minor program offers one of the few opportunities at WLU to participate in courses with multidisciplinary subject matter taught with an interdisciplinary approach. It attracts students from diverse faculties who engage critically in the study of science, technology, medicine, and environment from the varied perspectives of an increasingly sophisticated scholarly field of study. HPS core courses encourage students to engage firsthand with both the original works of scientists and scientific thinkers, as well as studies of the historical and philosophical contexts in which these works acquire meaning. A richly cross-disciplinary experience, the HPS Program invites students to recognize the mutual benefits in sharing their own diverse areas of specialization and training with one another.
