Master's Degree

The Master’s Programme in History of Science. Science, History and Society (UAB-UB-UPF) explores the social and historical dimension of science, technology and medicine. Examples of different disciplines and periods are analysed, from the origins of mathematics to molecular biology. The Master’s degree considers relevant questions about the evolution of science: How is scientific knowledge produced? How is it legitimised socially? What relation is there between science and technology, and between the different sciences? The Master’s programme provides students with a perspective on these questions, and prepares them to work in historical research or scientific communication.
