The emergence and diffusion of innovations - such as the Internet, genetic engineering, nanotechnology, new energy technologies, etc. - opens up both opportunities and threats to modern societies and economies. The Masters Programme in Society, Science and Technology provides a strong foundation in the interdisciplinary knowledge that is necessary for understanding and managing these complex issues. Businesses, governments, universities and citizens face great challenges when trying to take advantage of the seemingly infinite opportunities that scientific and technological developments offer, not least because of the potentially disastrous consequences that may also accompany them.

The programme's graduates will be well equipped to find employment as science and technology managers, advisors, consultants, researchers, engineers, journalists, etc. The programme provides them with CIRCLE's first-class competence to analyse and influence the economy's and society's response to the challenges posed by scientific and technological change. A 50-50 mix of international and Swedish students is strived for.
