Science & Technology Studies (STS)

In today’s controversial social and political climate, scientific facts and expertise are being challenged more and more frequently.  At the same time, science and technology have become cornerstones of our everyday lives, from the medications we take, to the modes of transport we depend on, to the cell phones we carry in our pockets.

Science and technology studies (STS) examines issues positioned at the intersection of science, technology, and society, with the ultimate goal of helping leaders in science, politics, public administration, business, and society to make informed decisions.
