UC Santa Barbara Establishes New Ph.D.

Abstract:
Ph.D. students at the University of California, Santa Barbara can now enroll in an innovative new program of study dealing with the societal implications of technology.

Chancellor Henry T. Yang notes that UC Santa Barbara is well suited to host such a program, since the campus is home to the Center for Information Technology and Society, which developed and will coordinate the new Ph.D. Emphasis in Technology and Society, and also now boasts the brand new Center for Nanotechnology in Society, supported by a $5-million grant from the National Science Foundation.
