Physics and Philosophy First Year

For more on the Physics and Philosophy programme in general, see the page on Physics and Philosophy.

Please could you pop in to see Peter Millican on Tuesday afternoon of noughth week, to say hello and discuss teaching arrangements for the year.

Freshers' Induction Week

There are many college events organised for incoming students during Freshers' Week (0th week of term). You should be given a personal timetable when you arrive, so be sure to consult this and to go to the events relevant to you.

Overall Philosophy Teaching Scheme

In most respects, joint degree programmes are just "divided down the middle", so you can broadly expect half your time to be spent on Philosophy every term (though I do make an effort to coordinate things with your other tutors whenever there are potential complications). Philosophy teaching this year is likely to be scheduled as follows, but note that this is subject to adjustment.

(Note that in this table, all underlined lectures are to be regarded as compulsory throughout. Other lectures are highly recommended – you should at least attend them to start with, and keep attending if they prove useful. All tutorials and college classes are, of course, compulsory)
