Program Requirements

 

Moderation Requirements:

 

1.        Course in the Science, Mathematics, and Computing Division (AP science courses may count) 

2.        2nd course in the S,M&C Division (AP science courses may count) 

3.        STS core course

 

The student's plan for a sequence of courses at moderation will be particularly important in more established fields of interest within STS such as the "History and Philosophy of Science" and "Non-Fiction Science Education and Documentation." In these cases, students would be required to complete particular key courses in the program. See the program website for more detailed information.

 

Graduation Requirements:

 

4.        3rd course in the S,M&C Division (a one year sequence in one field is preferred) (AP science courses may count)

5.        2nd STS core course

6.        STS cross-listed course

7.        STS cross-listed course outside student’s home division

8.        Methodology course, usually in policy analysis or statistics (recommended but not required)

9.        A senior project informed by themes relating to the social role of science and technology as it relates to the topic of the student’s primary concentration
