Admission for the Master Programme STS

The master programme Science-Technology-Society has a strong international and interdisciplinary orientation. We hence strongly encourage the participation of students from different cultural backgrounds, as well as from different disciplinary contexts – ranging from the social sciences to the humanities, the natural sciences and engineering. A reasonable command of English is needed to participate in classes and academic discussions, but also for written assignments.

For admission to the master programme a Bachelor or equivalent academic degree is required. For prospective students with a Bachelor degree which is not in the social sciences, a selected number of additional courses in theory and methods may be prescribed.

Application period & details

You can apply for the programme from 4 March to 8 April 2024. For further information, click here.

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).

After a presentation of the program director, there were opportunities for questions from prospective students.
