Science and technology fundamentally influence society. The reverse is also true: society shapes the ways in which science and technology evolve. You become a critical researcher and bridge-builder.

Science and technology fundamentally influence society. The reverse is also true: society shapes the ways in which science and technology evolve. You become a critical researcher and bridge-builder.

In the specialisation, you will learn how science and society influence each other, how the various social and scientific actors interact and how implicit assumptions, values, and interests of these actors can be made visible and open to discussion. You will also learn under which circumstances tensions arise between science and society, how we can understand these tensions and what solutions are possible.

In that process, you acquire skills in critical thinking, social research, and the analysis of media and culture. At the end, you will be a biologist, chemist, mathematician, etc. that understands the philosophical assumptions as well as political and social values in scientific developments. You will be able to make scientists familiar with societal perceptions, and to contribute to science-related consultancy for governments, businesses, or citizen groups.
