Excellent communication is valuable in any field. At Stanford, the bulk of one’s academic work is demonstrated and delivered in various writing or speaking tasks. In an interdisciplinary program like STS, communication has an added value: to allow engineers to speak with policy makers and code designers to confer with ethicists. In the bigger picture, excellent communication allows its practitioners to make these cross-pollinations fruitful--to connect different areas of study in productive and innovative projects without losing coherence, specificity, or depth.
