Current societal problems—such as digitization, climate change, and healthcare—have become so complex that they can no longer be siloed into individual research disciplines. Accordingly, interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary competencies are required.
However, these kinds of skills can often appear to contradict one another.
They require disciplinary assumptions and traditions to be reconsidered,
and new, common approaches to be developed. STS coursework addresses
this unique contemporary challenge.
