(p.1) Introduction
Science at Oxford, 1914-1939

Jack Morrell

Oxford University Press

This introductory chapter explains the coverage of this book, which is about the development and evolution of the science curriculum of Oxford University in England from 1914 to 1939. Prior to 1914, Oxford was known as an arts university. It was only in 1939 that Oxford developed a new research identity because of an increase in the number of science fellows and undergraduates. This book examines the context of Oxford science historically, intellectually, and structurally, and discusses vocational agrarian and non-vocational sciences.

Keywords:   science curriculum, Oxford University, England, universities, vocational sciences, non-vocational sciences
