Science, Technology, and Society Minor

Intercollege Program (S T S)

This interdisciplinary minor, administered jointly by the College of Engineering and the College of the Liberal Arts, is designed for students in every curriculum at the University. The S T S courses help students integrate their other courses within the framework of the relationships of science, technology, and society. This minor enables students to examine critically the impact of scientific investigation and technological development on society's values, priorities, and institutions, and alternatively the influence human needs have upon scientific and technological activities.

A grade of C or better is required for all courses in the minor.
