Graduate Programs in STS

Rensselaer’s Science and Technology Studies Department offers an M.S./Ph.D. in Science and Technology Studies, and a Ph.D. in Science and Technology Studies for students who already have a Master's degree in a relevant field.  Currently, the Department is not accepting students who wish to pursue a stand-alone Master’s degree, but students may earn a Master’s degree while working toward a PhD.
