The master’s programme in History and Philosophy of Science at the University of Vienna is jointly taught by faculty from our five history departments, the Institute Vienna Circle, the STS department, and the Institute of Philosophy. The program equips students with the knowledge and competency to carry out investigations in history, cultural studies and philosophy in a broad sense of academic research. Students acquire substantial and methodologically precise competences in reconstructing, analysing and assessing:

1. the historical development of the discipline (central concepts, fields of knowledge, institutions, biographies) in all of its political, social, cultural, and gender-specific contexts; 2. models and questions in the philosophy of science; 3. the social motives, interrelations and consequences of academic research.
