This chapter sums up the findings of this study on development and evolution of the science curriculum of Oxford University in England from 1914 to 1939. The importance of science was grudgingly acknowledged in the University through the extensive contributions to the war effort by many Oxford scientists. World war I prompted developments which were unthinkable in peacetime. These include the launch of industrial research at Oxford and the introduction of two research degrees, the undergraduate degree in chemistry and the Doctorate of Philosophy (D.Phil).
