Physics & Philosophy

Physics and Philosophy is a joint honours degree.

This demanding course brings together the most fundamental subjects in the arts and the sciences.  In historic times it would have been a single subject: Natural Philosophy. It covers logic, and general philosophy, philosophy of knowledge, reality, special relativity, and quantum mechanics on one hand, and all the subjects you expect in a physics course with several highly specialised courses in the final years.

This is the right course for everybody who wants to really understand what it all means. More information can be found on the web-pages of the University and Physics Department.

We are one of the two leading colleges offering this course in Oxford and are expecting to admit 3 students every year, who will be taught with the Physics and other Philosophy students by our dedicated team of Fellows and tutors, led by Professor James Read, Professor Alfons Weber, Professor Tim Woollings and Professor Guy Kahane.
