History and Philosophy of Science takes an interdisciplinary approach to understanding what science is and its role in society. Using philosophical, historical and social perspectives you’ll explore the history of scientific thought, the links between magic, science and religion and the nature of scientific knowledge. You’ll combine core and optional modules to explore key questions in history and philosophy of science while focusing on issues and questions that suit your interests. Russian Civilisation allows you to study Russian literature, media, history, politics, religious practices, economic and social issues to gain a wide range of skills. You don’t need any language skills, but you’ll have the chance to learn at beginners’ level in your first year. A combination of core and optional modules will give you a firm grounding in different aspects of Russian culture alongside specialist knowledge in the areas that interest you the most.
