About Wesleyan University, Science in Society Program
The Science in Society Program is a dynamic interdisciplinary major that examines the study of the sciences, medicine and technology as integral to society and culture. The sciences, medicine, and technology affect almost every facet of our lives: our bodies, daily routines, physical surroundings, self-understanding, intellectual life, economic prospects, and political possibilities. Scientific work has affected people’s intellectual standards, cultural meanings, political possibilities, economic capacities, and physical surroundings. Scientific research has also acquired significance, direction, authority, and application within various social and cultural contexts. To understand the sciences as human achievements is, in significant part, to understand the world in which we live.
