Pittsburgh Summer Program 2:
A Summer Program in Philosophy of Science for Underrepresented Groups, July 16 to July 20, 2018

Meet the Class of 2018

Fifteen students from across the USA and Mexico will participate in the 2018 PSP, click here to learn more.

Who is it for?

  • Undergraduates from North America
  • Women
  • Underrepresented racial/ethnic backgrounds
  • Students with disabilities
  • First-generation undergraduates
  • Other undergraduates from groups underrepresented in philosophy of science

Exceptions may be granted to undergraduates not in these groups on a case-by-case basis (please explain your situation in your cover letter). Past coursework in philosophy of science is not a prerequisite for application to the Summer Program.

What is it?

The Summer Program will feature two daily graduate seminars about core issues and cutting-edge topics in general philosophy of science and philosophy of the special sciences (e.g., physics, biology, cognitive science and neuroscience, social sciences). The seminars and lectures will be given by internationally recognized faculty in the Department of History and Philosophy of Science and the Department of Philosophy at the University of Pittsburgh as well as in the Department of Philosophy at Carnegie Mellon University.

For further details, visit the page for PSP1, where you'll find last year's course descriptions, schedule, etc.

Housing, meals, and transportation costs (US travel only) will be covered, and all course materials provided. Applications are due March 1, 2018, and participants will be notified by April 16, 2018.
