C-STEPS helps support a Ph.D. specialization in Science and Technology through funded projects that enable the education and training of a new generation of social scientists who are committed to an interdisciplinary approach to problem solving. Once admitted to the School of Public Affairs PhD program, students interested in the field of science and technology policy are assigned to one of the ongoing research projects where they learn how to conduct interdisciplinary social science research. Many students who have worked with C-STEPS have gone on to academic careers, others have accepted positions in government. More information on the Ph.D. program can be found here.
