Information Event – Master of Arts in Science-Technology-Society

11. Dezember 2019 @ 18:00 19:00

Scientific and technological developments play a crucial role in how we live in modern societies, and in how we imagine societal futures. At the same time, social values, political agendas or economic logics influence how scientific research is conducted and technological artifacts are designed.

Science, technology and society are hence inextricably interrelated. This constitutes the object of research of the field of Science and Technology Studies (STS).

The master degree “Science-Technology-Society” offered by the Department of Science and Technology Studies of the University of Vienna provides the opportunity to study this in an interdisciplinary and international setting.

The STS master starts every winter semester. The number of students accepted is limited to 30 for each academic year. The application period for the academic year of 2020-2021 will be 1st of March to 30th of April.

We organize an event to inform interested students about the topics and structure of the master programme, and about the application process. After a presentation of the program director, there will be opportunities for informal interaction with current students of the master programme.
