Science and technology public policy strongly guides the future of science education and research. Given the challenges to future federal support, this four-day seminar aims to introduce science and engineering students to the nuts and bolts of science policy-making. The course will expose students to the fundamental structure and dynamics of science policy and inform them of routes into a policy experience or career. This seminar is sponsored by the Dean of Graduate Students, who supports the integration and deepening of science policy awareness within the MIT community at all levels. To enroll, please email johannaw@mit.edu with a brief essay (~150 words) regarding your student status and what you hope to get out of the class.
