11 PhD Programs in Science Studies 2023
The PhD is a doctoral degree, specifically called a "doctor of philosophy" degree. This is misleading because PhD holders are not necessarily philosophers (unless they earned their degree in philosophy!). That said, PhD recipients are able to engage in thought experiments, reason about problems, and solve problems in sophisticated ways.
Science studies investigate social, historical, and philosophical questions using observation and experimentation. Students in this field have the opportunity to learn different methodologies, and then they often can choose a topic on which to conduct research.
