The Holtz Center will continue to accept applications from UW-Madison Graduate Students until funds are no longer available.
The Holtz Center for Science and Technology Studies is collecting various COVID-19 resources from our membership across the UW-Madison campus. We know that you, as experts in your field, will have a lot to share on this topic.
Science and Technology Studies (STS)
Science and technology studies (STS) is a growing field of study that seeks to understand how science and technology shape human lives and livelihoods and how society and culture, in turn, shape the development of science and technology.
History of The Holtz Center
In the 1990s, Bob and Jean Holtz made an initial commitment that created the Holtz Center for Science and Technology Studies at UW-Madison.
The Ph.D. minor (Option A) in STS is offered to graduate students who are candidates for a Ph.D. degree in another department or program. The minor is open to students in all campus departments, including the humanities, social sciences, natural scie
ISSuES offers undergraduate students an opportunity to interact with the social sciences and humanities in a way that emphasizes the relationship between science, technology, engineering and society.
