STS PhDs a good fit for someone with Phil + Design background?


Recommended Posts

Hi all,


I recently received a masters in Interaction Design from CMU with a pretty high CGPA, have decent GRE scores (very high verbal), and I have a background in design and continental philosophy. I've been particularly interested in the philosophy of technology, particularly ethics, and I was wondering if there are any STS programs that would be a good fit for someone who wants to explore technology through philosophical rather than sociological lenses. So far I've been looking at Cornell, MIT HASTS, and RPU.

I am not very familiar with this subfield, so I can't give you any advice about STS in particular, but out of curiosity, what are your plans after the PhD? Stay in academia in the US? Or...?

Fascinating subject, though, and I wish you the best with it!
