    Course Description

    The programme provides broad-based training in three disciplines: science policy and governance; science communication, engagement, and evaluation; and sociology of modern science and technology. This programme encourages specialised investigation. It also encourages interdisciplinary integration. The degree works in dialogue with their sister M.Sc. programme in History and Philosophy of Science, which adds historical and analytic depth to their offer.

    According to them, there is no UK academic department quite like Science & Technology Studies in UCL. The department combines award-winning teaching with award-winning public engagement.

    They are research-active over a various range of topics. Their teaching builds on research not only in their subject specialties but also in the fundamentals of teaching and learning.

    The programme makes unique use of London’s attractions and resources. They have close links with the Science Museum, the National Maritime Museum, the Natural History Museum, the Wellcome Library, and UCL Museums & Collections. They also use the city as a classroom, with custom-made walking tours, site visits, and special excursions.
