STS Graduate Certificate Students

Our STS Graduate Certificate Students are high achieving scholars in an STS-related field who choose to expand their studies by taking at least four courses from among the areas of concentration or in another area of their choosing. This coursework contributes to the coherence of the STS perspective that students bring to their dissertation research. The pursuit of the certificate bolsters intellectual engagement with STS and allows students to signal competence in the field.  See our students here.

Living in a Nuclear World: From Fukushima to Hiroshima

This volume presents a new perspective on nuclear history and politics by focusing on four interconnected themes–violence and survival; control and containment; normalizing through denial and presumptions; memories and futures–and exploring their relationships and consequences. Edited by STS Associate Director Kyoko Sato with Bernadette Bensaude-Vincent and Soraya Boudia, this book offers an important and valuable insight into other global and Anthropocene challenges such as climate change.  Read more here.
