The Science, Technology, and Society (STS) program systemically investigates the social dimensions of science, technology and medicine. Faculty from a range of disciplines contribute to a curriculum that features a broad set of perspectives, all grounded in a foundation of social theory, research methods, and writing and presentation skills. The STS program emphasizes three interrelated areas: environment and sustainability; health and medicine; and information, identities and networks. The STS Lab course is a unique feature of the curriculum - it prepares students to work as a team to address meaningful science and technology related topics. Working with a faculty adviser, graduate students develop an individualized plan of study that allows them to pursue their interests in-depth. STS students are independent, outside-of-the-box thinkers who are dedicated to understanding the intersections of society, science, medicine and technology. While STS students vary widely in their professional and educational backgrounds and career ambitions, they share a common commitment to a critical approach to our world’s most pressing techno scientific challenges. Prospective students for the MS in STS see this educational opportunity as a crucial factor in their skill development and career advancement. They are recent college graduates in engineering, the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences; professionals in businesses, city and state government offices, and area hospitals; and middle and high school teachers.
