STS 6541

Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2017-2018.

This course focuses on what happens when science meets the policy-making world. We will specifically focus on: the rise of science diplomacy, the use of science in order to further development goals, and on efforts to produce evidence-based foreign policy. We will further focus on currently hotly debated political issues in government affairs, including the politization and militarization of space, the rise of big data, the politics of climate change, and the construction of border walls. As part of this course we will hear from experts in the federal government on how they attempt to integrate science into the everyday workings of governance.
