Welcome to the Graduate Program in Science, Technology and Society
Science and technology matter
Science and technology affect how we understand our world, our societies, our economies, our bodies, and our minds. They affect what we believe and how we act. Indeed, science and technology matter so much, that many take them to be the defining institutions and preoccupations of our modern world. And with each passing day, their impact grows.
The Graduate Program in Science, Technology and Society at Bar-Ilan University invites you to take part in an intellectual adventure, studying science and technology with rigor and creativity, from a perspective that incorporates many disciplines: history, philosophy, sociology, anthropology, education, psychology, economics, critical theory, and more. While celebrating contemporary scientific and technological achievements as tributes to human ingenuity, we also appreciate the complex, ambivalent, and sometimes disruptive ways in which science, technology and society interact.
