Are you a PhD student, or do you know one, with an interest in Science & Technology Studies? Come find out more about the PhD Designated Emphasis (DE) in Science and Technology Studies (STS).

Join us for a meet and greet with Prof. David Winickoff, the Chair of the DE, and current DE students for drinks and discussion about what the DE involves.

You might also consider submitting an application for our DE.

The deadline for submissions is November 1st, 2012.

The DE in STS is a program of training in the social studies of science, technology, and medicine for Berkeley PhD students from any home department. Students who are accepted into the program, and who complete its requirements, will be in a strong position to excel within STS-related fields.

Students in this program receive a rigorous grounding in the studies of knowledge production and technological change. The program also facilitates a deeper involvement with the lively interdisciplinary research community at U.C. Berkeley dedicated to understanding the dynamic relations among science, technology, and social and political formations

Upon completion of all requirements and the dissertation, your transcript and diploma will read “PhD in [Home Department] with Designated Emphasis in Science and Technology Studies.”

Requirements include two core courses, and three elective courses, as well as other elements that will promote a solid foundation in the field and a sense of cohort for STS graduate students.

Please see the DE page for a more detailed description of features, requirements, and application process.

This event is sponsored by CSTMS.
