Introduction to Studies in Science, Technology and Society looks at historical and contemporary issues in science and technology that affect our understanding of the world around us and how we interact with nature and each other. This multidisciplinary course highlights ideas about science and technology used in history, philosophy, anthropology, sociology, and literature. The course encourages students from all parts of the university to think about what it means to live in a world that has been transformed by discoveries in science and a global society brought together by the power of technology. STS 200 is open to all undergraduates, but also fulfills part of the requirements for the major or minor in Science, Technology and Society.
