Museum Graduate Course

From 1996 to 2006, the Museum offered a one-year taught course for graduate students, in the ‘History of Science: Instruments, Museums, Science, Technology’. The students were awarded the degree of Master of Science from the University of Oxford, after following a course of lectures and demonstrations, sitting a written examination and preparing a dissertation.

Dr Jim Bennett and Dr Stephen Johnston taught the course in collaboration with Robert Fox, Professor of the History of Science, other members of the Faculty of Modern History and guest speakers.


Sphæra is the former newsletter of the museum. An archive of all the issues from 1995-2000 are available online.

Database of Medical and Chemical Biography 1800-1920

This is a database intended to provide a quick and easy finding-aid of basic biographical and bibliographical information for chemists and medical practitioners who were active between about 1800 and 1920. Data is primarily, but not exclusively, restricted to British (including Irish), French, and German subjects.
