Graduate

History and Philosophy of Science & Master of Library Science

“How science works” is, briefly, what the field of history and philosophy of science aims to show. That goal depends on centuries of scientific ideas, theories, practices, technology, and interactions with the wider world—information that you’ll be uniquely suited to navigate after you’ve completed the dual Master of Library Science / Master of Arts in History and Philosophy of Science.

You’ll also earn two degrees in fewer credit hours—and less time—than it would take to earn them separately.

The Department of History and Philosophy of Science offers the M.A.

How to Apply

You must apply for admission to—and meet the admission requirements for—both programs. See our program’s information for domestic students and international students.

Graduation

You will graduate after you finish both degrees—the degrees must be awarded simultaneously.

Tuition Rates

Different Indiana University schools charge different graduate tuition rates. For dual degrees, you will be coded in one of the two schools and pay that school’s tuition rate. To switch to the other school’s tuition rate, contact that department’s recorder as you near the halfway point in your program.
