We love our STS students and they love STS! Here are some of the reasons why:
I am so grateful for my STS education. My STS background has equipped me to move seamlessly through industries. STS empowered me to incorporate a framework driven by critical thinking as well as social, scientific, and ethical concerns in all areas of my work and personal life."

My favorite thing about STS is that it provided me the opportunity to learn technical skills in computing and finance and how to situate these concepts in a socio-cultural context. STS is special because it offers a unique opportunity to build a personalized course load that is fine-tuned to your interests.

STS allows one to probe their interests in a multitude of disciplinary frameworks and most crucially the ability over time to discern a field's imperatives, aspirations, and limits. Such flexibility crafted a curriculum that was in nature responsive to my ever-changing intellectual and personal growth at Stanford; a journey that in hindsight tailored an education that most reflected my curiosities and concerns each quarter.
Majoring in Science Technology and Society was one of the best decisions I made while at Stanford. I had the freedom to choose not only my concentration but a wide range of courses to take to fulfill graduation requirements. The courses I’ve taken within the STS program have helped me learn more about myself, things that I am interested in and what career path I want to head into for my life after Stanford. I’m extremely thankful to my STS family, professors, advisors, staff, and fellow STS classmates.
