University Majors

University of California, Davis
Science and Technology Studies A.B.

Science and Technology Studies is designed to facilitate the analysis and synthesis of science, technology, and medicine in a way that actively creates connections between the varieties of perspectives and concerns in the humanities and the sciences. The STS major takes science, technology, medicine, and their social, political, economic, and cultural contexts as its objects of study. As such, the STS major draws on the research programs of faculty in a wide range of departments, including American studies, anthropology, economics, environmental science and policy, history, philosophy, political science and sociology. Students in STS pursue a broader understanding of science than is available within traditional science majors and is also suitable for students in the social sciences interested in interpreting science, technology and medicine as part of society and culture.
