UW Graduate School

Science, Technology, and Society

This Graduate Certificate offers graduate students an opportunity to pursue a program of study in Science, Technology and Society Studies (STSS). STSS is a richly interdisciplinary domain of scholarship, the goal of which is to understand the formation, current practice, and broader impacts of the STEM fields (science, technology, engineering, mathematics). It integrates history and philosophy of science, social and cultural studies of science and technology, and normative studies of ethics, equity, and policy issues in or involving the STEM fields.
