Minor in the History of Science and Technology


In conjunction with the History Department, the Department of Science, Technology, and Society offers a minor in the history of technology and science. Open to all university undergraduates, this minor provides students with an opportunity to become familiar with humanistic perspectives of technology and science. For the engineering student, the minor offers an occasion for placing his or her professional education in a larger social and intellectual context; likewise, it provides the liberal arts student with a better understanding of science and technology as key components in human culture.

Requirements for the Minor in the History of Science and Technology:
The minor consists of 18 credits. College students may include the non-College courses as general electives upon completion of the requirements for the minor.
