TASCHA offers students opportunities to learn about the issues surrounding technology and social change and to gain practical research experience. Formal academic arrangements include research seminars, independent study, and courses.
The TASCHA research seminar offers students an opportunity to gain practical research experience while contributing to one of our projects. This is our primary venue for student involvement in TASCHA. View current and past seminars.
In cases where the research seminar does not meet a student’s needs, our faculty and researchers may be able to oversee independent study projects that provide valuable learning experiences and opportunities to contribute to TASCHA research. Contact Karen Hirst to schedule an appointment.
The University of Washington offers a wide range of courses on issues related to technology and social change. These courses are offered by several departments: communication, computer science, human-centered design and engineering, law, political science, and sociology. (We’re working to identify and pull together these courses into one list; in the meantime please see CHANGE’s course list.) Currently the university does not offer an interdisciplinary degree or specialized certificate in this field.
