STS examines science communication and its effectiveness


UCL Science and Technology Studies

UCL Department of Science and Technology Studies, abbreviated to "STS", is an centre for the integrated study of science's history, philosophy, sociology, communication and policy.

STS wants people to think about science differently. We want to understand science as a force in modern society. We want to understand what underpins its successes and failures. We want to understand its boundaries and concentrations.

Founded in 1921, STS is located in the heart of London. STS staff have won multiple awards for teaching and research. Our public engagement programme is award winning, too. Our teaching is classed as outstanding by students at every level.
