Members of the IHC teach in different degree programmes in the faculties of Ciències, Biociències, Medicina, Filosofia i Lletres i Psicologia in the UAB. These subjects address the development of science, technology and medicine throughout history, taking into account their social, political and cultural dimension.

For students in the fields of science, engineering and health sciences, history helps them to understand science as an institution in transformation and dialogue with its surroundings. Students become aware of the ethical dimension of the research activity and of its influence on society as a whole.

In the case of students in the fields of Arts, Humanities and Social Science, the subjects provide students with basic techno-scientific knowledge and they create links between the different fields of knowledge.

With the introduction of the new degree in Science, Technology and Humanities (UAB-UAM-UC3M), the distinctions between fields of knowledge are beginning to fade as the study of science is addressed from a more comprehensive perspective.

The information of each subject can be found in this study guides
