About Us

About Us.

The History, Philosophy, and Sociology of Science Student Association (HPSSA) was founded in January 2012 by students in Lyman Briggs, a residential college for the sciences at Michigan State University. History, Philosophy, and Sociology of Science, often shortened HPS, plays an integral part in Lyman Briggs by bridging the sciences and humanities in student education.

HPSSA strives to:

  • Create a community for students interested in HPS
  • Strengthen the network between students and HPS faculty
  • Offer insight into the numerous opportunities for HPS majors and minors
  • Help Briggs students connect HPS to their lives in college and after
  • Prepare students for life after college in any field

Bi-weekly meetings include speaker events with HPS and university faculty covering a variety of HPS related topics, peer-editing ‘parties’, professional school informational panels, movie nights, and discussions to name a few.  We also collaborate with other on campus groups.
