Students in the College of Liberal Arts's Science, Technology and Society Minors Program explore the interconnections of science, technology and society, and how each impacts and influences each other and the world.
Through a deeper understanding of these connections, students are equipped to tackle the multifaceted global challenges and questions we face today.
From climate change to cyber-warfare, and from health inequalities to the future of interactive and collaborative storytelling, STS students are positioned to create better policy and risk communication, more inclusive science and technology, and cutting-edge digital media.
With a project-based, hands-on approach, STS students align their passions and goals to customize one of four interdisciplinary minor paths:
- Ethics, Public Policy, Science and Technology (EPPST)
- Gender, Race, Culture, Science and Technology (GRCST)
- Media Arts, Society and Technology (MAST)
- Science and Risk Communication (SRC)
The STS Minors Program prepares students for success in fast-paced, evolving and interdisciplinary careers. Through team-based Learn by Doing experiences, STS minors work with students and faculty from across campus, and engage with project partners in our community and around the world. STS students learn how to innovate and create bridges between diverse disciplines and professions to solve complex problems — empowering students to change the world.
