The purpose of the Social Thought minor is to enable graduate students in a variety of fields to study theories of society across conventional disciplinary boundaries. The minor enables qualified students to enrich their own chosen fields of study with readings and discoveries from other, contiguous fields. The minor requires at least 15 credits of courses with social thought content. These are courses taught by STP Affiliated Faculty or those approved by the STP Advisory Committee. Those 15 credits must include the following: at least 9 credits of courses from outside the student's major discipline and SOCTH 501 -- Introduction to Social Thought. In addition, at least one member of the student's dissertation committee must be an STP Affiliated Faculty and preferably be from outside the student's major discipline.
