Course info

Summary

The STS graduate certificate offers the opportunity to learn and develop competency in various aspects of the relations between science, technology, and society. It is intended to serve both current graduate students in other programs at Virginia Tech and non-degree-seeking students interested in career advancement. For example, an STS certificate might help: a graduate student in Public Administration launch a career in administering a science-policy oriented NGO, a biology student who wants training in public engagement, or a graduate student in Philosophy who wants to combine the philosophy of science with the empirical study of scientists at work.
