Philosophy of physics is explored at Oxford by studies both in physics and in philosophy, but in all cases as informed by physics; a strong background in physics is a pre-requisite to the study of philosophy of physics at Oxford. Equally, in all cases, physics is studied in tandem with philosophy, at every stage of undergraduate and graduate teaching and research.
