|Science & Society is the study of the interface
between scientific progress and its impact and stimulus from
society. The subject gained a higher level of importance and respect
following the use of atomic weapons to put an end to WWII in the
Pacific. Moral and ethical issues dominate the topics.
As with most of the natural and social sciences today, there are innumerable, fast-growing career opportunities for intelligent and responsible science reporters, information aggregators, science critics, and literate social/political activists. These occupations help bridge the knowledge gaps between science, society, technology, and government. This need is critical, but the necessary technological tools are already at our fingertips. All that's needed are the people who can transform potential solutions into practical realities. And just as the tools are largely new and untested, so are the personal career paths for those who wish to contribute the necessary intellect and human energy.
