The Graduate Program in Science and Technology Studies offers opportunities for advanced research and study of scientific work and thought from a variety of perspectives associated with the humanities and social sciences. An associated Ph.D. degree appears as a research stream under the individual graduate programs in English, History and Philosophy, for example, "History-Science and Technology Studies". The MA degree program in Science and Technology Studies offer graduate students firm grounding in the fundamental concepts, research methods, and discourses of STS, including disciplinary and theoretical perspectives on the question of scientific objectivity and methodology; sites of knowledge production; the development of scientific knowledge and technological practices; the uses of knowledge in policymaking and other social contexts; the political and social roles of scientists, engineers, and other experts; science, technology, and ethics; science, technology, and aesthetic representation; public perceptions of science and technology; the rhetoric of science; and critical analysis of interactions between science and technology and the broader literary and media cultures in which they are embedded. - Faculty of Arts - Coursework + Thesis required - possible program start dates in September - further information at http://www.grad.ubc.ca/prospective-students/graduate-degree-programs/master-of-arts-science-technology-studies
