SCIENCE & TECHNOLOGY STUDIES

Science & Technology studies involves  analyzing and assessing the nature, history and the social and cultural consequences of science and technology. Historical studies of science are used in the construction and testing of models of the way in which scientific investigation proceeds, and to inquire into the nature of scientific theories and technological applications.

History and Philosophy of Science is an area that deals with the nature, history, social shaping and social impacts of science, technology, medicine and other realms of inquiry. Not only is the history and philosophy of science important, but also the connected fields of environmental studies and management, technology and its social impacts, and the politics of medical science and health.
