Why Study Science, Technology, and Society Here?

Science and Technology Studies is a growing field that draws on the full range of disciplines in the social sciences and humanities to examine the ways that science and technology shape, and are shaped by, our society, politics, and culture. We study contemporary controversies, historical transformations, policy dilemmas, and broad philosophical questions. The graduate program prepares students to be productive and publicly-engaged scholars, advancing research and making a difference.
