Science, Culture, and Society Minor

This minor is for social scientists and humanists interested in how science integrates with their field, and science-focused students interested in how humanities and the social sciences integrate with theirs.

This minor engages students in discussion and research in issues that can benefit from varied approaches—race, bioterrorism, technology and human well-being, health, and the nature of consciousness. Students develop a multiperspective, interdisciplinary complement to their major discipline from nontraditional directions such as science and literature, science writing, and science and the arts. 

Requirements: IDS205 (Science and the Nature of Evidence); three courses agreed upon with the adviser that integrate the student’s major field and related, but distinct fields; and a capstone experience designed with the minor adviser.
