5240 Weill Hall

Join us for an information session about the Science, Technology, and Public Policy (STPP) Graduate Certificate!

Do you want to learn how science and technology policy is made? Are you interested in the social and ethical implications of developments like gene editing, facial recognition, or autonomous vehicles? Are you concerned about the increased politicization of science and research funding?

In the STPP graduate certificate program, graduate students from across the University analyze the role of science and technology in the policymaking process, gain experience writing for policymakers, and explore the political and policy landscape of areas such as biotechnology, information technology, energy, and others. Graduates of the STPP certificate have gone on to a range of policy-engaged scientific roles in government, NGOs, and academia.
