Introduction

Science and technology form part of our day-to-day lives wherever we are, and we constantly have to make decisions drawing on scientific and technological knowledge. Natural scientists tell us the significance of C02 in relation to climate change, and when we have to decide whether to reduce C02 emissions, we need to understand what sort of knowledge we have and on what it is based. The MSc in Science Studies provides you with insight into how scientific discoveries and knowledge have affected our lives and our societies. You learn to place scientific knowledge within historical, philosophical, and social perspectives, and you work comprehensively with the many challenges and opportunities that science provides.

Science, Culture, and Society

The MSc in Science Studies is open to students with a BSc degree in science and an interest in gaining a wider perspective on how the natural sciences have developed in their interaction with society and contemporary culture. The program includes the following themes supplementing students’ basic studies in science: history and philosophy of science; science, technology, and innovation; science and society; and science and communication.

As a student in science studies, you will learn to understand the social and philosophical implications of science, the forces driving technological change, and contemporary developments within research and public understanding of science. Knowledge of the development of science and the ability to analyze science in a cultural and societal context can be useful in many different situations. For example, graduates may choose to work with communicating science and its challenges and opportunities to the general public through the media. Their knowledge of the interaction between the natural sciences, technology, and society can be applied in public administration, the business community, and in many different organizations. With a BSc degree in science and the broad perspective provided by the MSc in Science Studies, graduates are well prepared to enter into multidisciplinary collaboration with colleagues in many different fields. The MSc program also qualifies graduates for a research career in science studies.

An Intimate Study Environment

The MSc in Science Studies program is taught in the framework of a small center where students benefit from an international, yet informal, down-to-earth atmosphere between staff and students. As an MSc student, you will have excellent opportunities for engaging in projects related to current research and/or practical content, and you will have the option to specialize in many different subjects.
