The Graduate Program
in Science, Technology and Society
Science and Technology Matter
In a world where science and technology drive economies, shape societies, and permeate the cultural imagination, understanding science and technology is paramount and crucial for human survival and flourishing.
The graduate program in Science, Technology and Society at Bar-Ilan University offers a diverse and interdisciplinary framework for thinking about science at technology. Our program explores the complex, surprising and crucial ways in which science and technology interact with human societies. It investigates the ways in which human values, norms and interests shape the trajectories of science and technology, and the equally compelling ways in which science and technology frame and shape societies, their economic, and cultural forms, as well as their modes of knowledge and action.
Our program is theoretically grounded in STS theory, and conversant with diverse disciplines and schools of thought such as sociology, history of science, political economy, and media studies. More details are available here.
