The Center for Science, Technology, Medicine, & Society (CSTMS) at UC Berkeley promotes rigorous interdisciplinary research based on the conviction that the pressing problems of our time are simultaneously scientific and social, technological and political, ethical and economic.

Ways to become involved

CSTMS has opportunities for many different types of people to become involved.  These easiest way to start is to attend any of our events.

Undergraduates should look into our Course Thread in Sciences and Society.  Graduate students have two options, our PhD Field in History of Science & Technology, and our PhD Designated Emphasis in Science, Technology, & Society.

If you are a student or scholar at another university and would like to make use of the resources at the Center and the University, we encourage you to apply to our Visiting Scholars & Students program.

If you are a faculty member interested in becoming affiliated with the Center, or if you would like to be considered as a core faculty member in the graduate Designated Emphasis in STS, we welcome your involvement. Please contact the director.
