Classe mŗster

The master's degree in History of Science: Science, History and Society (UAB-UB) explores the social and historical dimension of science, technology and medicine. It studies examples from different disciplines and periods, from the origins of mathematics to molecular biology. The master's degree asks important questions about the evolution of science: How is scientific knowledge produced? How does it achieve social acceptance? What is the relationship between science and technology, and between the different sciences? Students are given ways to approach these questions and are trained to undertake historical research or scientific communication.
