The sciences and medicine affect almost every facet of our lives: our bodies, daily routines, physical surroundings, self-understanding, intellectual life, economic prospects, and political possibilities. The Science in Society Program is a dynamic interdisciplinary major that examines the sciences, medicine and technology as integral to society and culture. Our students explore the history, philosophy, and social studies of science and medicine together with advanced work in a science, to prepare themselves for a world that respects no clear boundary between nature and culture.
