Science, Technology and Society (STS)Multidisciplinary Program

sciencetechnologyandsociety.vassar.edu

This multidisciplinary program engages broadly the conversation on the intersections between science, technology, and a breadth of social, political, historic, economic and philosophic contexts which shape and, in turn are shaped by, science and technology. More specifically, the curriculum in Vassar’s STS Program is designed to enable students to understand the central role of science and technology in contemporary society; to examine how science and technology reflect their social, political, philosophical, economic, and cultural contexts; and to explore the human, ethical, and policy implications of current and emerging technologies. A senior thesis and senior colloquium are required.
