The Munich Center for Technology in Society (MCTS) of the TU Munich launched its new Master’s program in Science and Technology Studies this year. It is an English language program. Next application will be possible from January 1, 2017 on.
The STS Master’s Program at MCTS is empirical, interdisciplinary, reflexive and research oriented. From bio-technology to energy transitions, from automated mobility to data security – the big challenges of todays’ societies are inseparably connected to scientific, technical and social questions. The Master’s program Science and Technology Studies (STS) will teach students how to reflexively research, develop problem-solving skills and critically intervene in the big socio-technical issues of our time.
In the Master’s program students will learn:
- empirical research methods and analytical skills to study the conditions and consequences of contemporary science and technology
- interdisciplinary approaches to urgent questions about regulation, responsibility and sustainability of science and technology
Alongside the STS Master’s program, we offer specializations in the Philosophy of Science and Technology or the History of Science and Technology.
The STS Master’s program is research oriented. The program prepares you for future academic research (such as a PhD), as well as careers in science and technology management, science communication and journalism, and in science funding and policy. Studying the Master’s program STS will equip students to deal with the challenges and to embrace the opportunities of todays’ technologized societies.
