The PhD in Human and Social Dimensions of Science and Technology at Arizona State University is an ambitious, interdisciplinary initiative to understand what it means for humanity that today’s societies are permeated by science and technology. We come from the humanities and social sciences, the sciences, and engineering. We come from non-profits, policy, business, communication, and education. Together, we pursue a common goal: to rethink how people fit into the worlds of science and technology so that we can create better human outcomes, solve the 21st Century’s grand challenges, innovate more responsibly and responsively to human needs, and fashion more just and livable societies. We invite you to become a part of our extraordinary community and this exciting and innovative endeavor.
