Welcome to Science Studies

The Science Studies Program at UC San Diego was established in 1989. At present, the Program involves sixteen core faculty members and thirty-six graduate students from the Program's "home" departments of communication, history, philosophy, and sociology. Students and faculty in the Program are committed to working toward deeper understanding of scientific knowledge in its full cultural and historical context. The Program offers students an opportunity to integrate the perspectives developed within the communication of science, history of science, sociology of science, and philosophy of science, while receiving a thorough training at the professional level in one of those disciplines.
