Science and Technology Studies
UCL Department of Science and Technology Studies, which we abbreviate to "STS", is an centre for the integrated study of:
- history of science
- philosophy of science
- science communication and public engagement
- science policy, or science and government
- sociology of science
STS wants people to think differently about science. We want to understand how science acts 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. We welcome applications for study at every degree level.
