The goal of the minor program is to give students a broad social perspective on the fields of engineering and science: how they have evolved and how they fit into the wider context of society, culture, politics, and values.
The Minor in STS consists of six subjects as follows:
- One STS Tier I subject
- One STS Tier II subject
- STS.004 Critical Issues in STS*
- Three other STS subjects
Keep in mind that you can share up to 5 subjects in a STS Minor with the HASS GIR Requirement. Therefore, you could only need one extra subject to create a STS Minor. A full Minor is very accessible!
For general information about completing a minor within the School of Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences (SHASS), including the HASS Minor Proposal and Completion forms you need for the STS Minor, visit their website.
* Substitution with a similar subject may be permitted by petition to the STS Undergraduate Officer.
