CU Boulder Graduate Certificate
in Science & Technology Policy

STP Certificate Program“Universities today have a double duty: to educate and train not only those who will have careers in research, but also those who will become entrepreneurs, managers, consultants, investors, or policy makers.” - National Research Council 1999

Society has a growing need for expertise in science and technology policy. The Graduate Certificate in Science and Technology Policy at the University of Colorado-Boulder, which is being offered in a parallel form at the Colorado School of Mines, is a rigorous educational program to prepare students pursuing graduate degrees for careers at the interface of science, technology, and decision making.

Recipients of the certificate have gone on to positions in Congress, academia, NOAA, and elsewhere.

Upon completion of the Certificate Program students will have attained a measure of understanding of the broad societal context of science and technology as well as an introduction to methodologies of policy analysis that are used in decision settings related to science and technology.

The certificate will be awarded upon completion of degree requirements and will require completion of 18 hours of approved coursework. Ph.D. students are expected to incorporate science and technology policy, in some manner (e.g., in one chapter), into their Ph.D. dissertation and include on their committee a member from outside their home department with science and technology policy expertise.
