For complete and up-to-date information about this course, please visit the relevant University of Oxford course page via www.graduate.ox.ac.uk/ucas This one-year, full-time 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 and/or mathematics rather than in philosophy and it presumes an undergraduate-level education in physics. This course is not available in part-time mode of study and is not offered via distance learning. This course consists of core courses in the philosophy of physics, the philosophy of science and one elective subject. You are examined on the basis of four essays. Tuition is offered in the form of supervisions, lectures and classes. Please note that this course is not a research degree. Philosophy of physics During the first two terms, you will attend the undergraduate lecture course in Intermediate Philosophy of Physics, participate in a dedicated graduate class in Advanced Philosophy of Physics, and will receive supervisions with (an) expert(s) in the field. Supervisions are usually around two hours long, on a subject to be chosen by you in consultation with your supervisor, normally on an issue arising out of classes and lectures. You will write an essay for each supervision, and discussion of this essay will form the basis of the supervision. This subject is examined by two essays, each of no more than 5,000 words, to be written over the Easter vacation, on topics that will be prescribed by the examiners. At most one essay may fall under each of the following subjects: Philosophy of science You will attend the undergraduate lecture courses in the philosophy of science and the graduate class in philosophy of science and receive supervisions. This subject is examined by one essay of no more than 5,000 words on a topic of your own choosing, but excluding topics specifically in the philosophy of physics (as specified above). Elective subject You will study one of the following subjects: You will attend the graduate class in the elective subject and receive supervisions. This subject is examined by one essay of no more than 5,000 words on a topic of your own choosing.
