The courses in Philosophy of Physics are open to all students doing Part III, but are formally listed as graduate courses. This means there is no exam at the end of May for any such course; but a Part III student can get credit for them by doing their submitted Part III essay in association with one of the courses. More generally, the Philosophy of Physics courses are intended as a refreshing and reflective companion to the other Part III courses, especially the courses in theoretical physics.
