UCL Department of Science and Technology Studies (STS) offers a diverse range of modules for UCL postgraduate taught students (Masters). Students from other UCL degree programmes welcome.
HPSC Modules for Postgraduate Taught students
The STS Postgraduate Taught Module Catalogue lists HPSC modules offered by UCL Science and Technology Studies (STS) for the 2020-21 session. Discuss module selection with your personal tutor.
What does a module require? STS maintains a library of module syllabi. Use these as a guide for the scope and purpose of the module. Please be aware that tutors often change syllabi, adapting them to new information and responding to student feedback.
