The MA in Science and Technology Studies will provide students with an advanced introduction to STS research and its fields of application. Students will be encouraged to address existing STS literature in-depth, and will have the opportunity to pursue a major, but short-term, research project of their own design. This experience will offer those students coming into the graduate program with an undergraduate degree in STS with the chance to both focus their existing interests in the field while expanding their repertoire of interdisciplinary tools to analyze the diverse structures of the sciences and technology.
