The Science, Technology and Society (STS) program offers a broad education in the sciences, social sciences, and humanities.

Students gain multiple perspectives and methods of research and problem solving that they can apply in their careers after graduation.

We provide students rigorous academics along with practical experiences to prepare them to address key problems, such as those below, that impact locally and globally:

  • What are the ethical dimensions of drug trials, HIV vaccine testing, end of life decisions, access to health insurance?
  • What are the ethical dimensions of environmental resource allocations?
  • How do we present new HIV transmissions in our city?
  • What ethical criteria apply to the internet?
  • Technology and our Bodies:  how far is too far?
  • How can we make our neighborhood more sustainable?
  • What are the social factors behind drug addiction?
  • How can scientific findings be more clearly and accurately conveyed to the public?
