Our Program

Science & Technology Studies offers an interdisciplinary program of study focused on the critical role of science and technology, both past and present. Research in the field applies the methods and theories of the humanities, social sciences and cultural studies to the examination of technology and scientific knowledge and practice.

Science & Technology Studies is particularly well positioned to provide analytical, critical and historically informed insight to complex questions regarding science, health and engineering policy, intellectual property, expertise, ethics, and the public understanding of science. This field contributes to timely debates that bridge the academy and the world beyond it with a dexterity that is more difficult to achieve from within the traditional disciplines.


Our Students win scholarships!

Since the program began in 2009, 70 % of our PhD students have received external funding to support their studies from varied sources such as: SSHRC, OGS, Vanier, Trillium, Elia, Colciencias (Colombia), Tubitak (Turkey), NASA and Enbridge.
