Introducing MUSTS

The research programme Maastricht University - Science, Technology and Society Studies (MUSTS) draws on a combination of philosophical, historical, sociological and anthropological approaches. The general question is how modern societies are constituted by science and technology, and how, vice versa, social and cultural conditions shape technological and scientific developments. The research focuses on the 20th and 21st centuries, with attention to the historical roots in the 17th-19th centuries.

Research master Cultures of Art, Science and Technology

Prospective students may be interested to have a look at our research master Cultures of Arts, Science and Technology (CAST), which provides training in researching the roles of science, technology and the arts in modern culture.
