Learn more about a master’s in science and technology with the School for the Future of Innovation in Society

Posted by on May 8, 2017 in Degree Programs, Graduate Students, Opportunities |

This content is more than a year old. Find upcoming events on the calendar or recent news on the home page.

On April 21, 2017, tens of thousands of people across the country marched for science. They were making the case for evidence-based policies and decisions in a world that increasingly seems to sideline science.

In this emerging world, there’s a growing need for a new kind of leader — one who can bridge the gap between science and technology and the policies that govern them and their use, and ensure that science and technology policies lead to a better future for everyone, whether they impact economic growth, food and the environment, health, or equity and equality.

The ASU Master of Science and Technology Policy uniquely prepares future leaders to ensure policies and decisions are informed by science, and responsive to society’s needs. If you have a science and engineering background, and are passionate about enabling science-informed and socially responsive policy, please check us out.

Learn more about the ASU Master of Science and Technology Policy program.

We’re looking forward to hearing from you!
