PhD Program in Science Studies

The Science Studies Program at UCSD brings together faculty and students from communication, history, philosophy and sociology to work toward a deeper understanding of the development of scientific and technical knowledge. Program faculty work in a wide range of intellectual venues, such as the historical and philosophical studies of the development of scientific knowledge, social organization of science and science policy, theoretical and practical analysis of science and infrastructure.
