Courses

Fall 2019

The following courses from departments and programs around the university will count for credit towards an STS degree. Core STS courses are considered to be foundational for the STS degree. General STS courses weave together multiple themes in the field. Finally, some courses are designated in belonging to one or more of the three Tracks of Study (Track I: Bodies, Health, and Medicine; Track II: Science and the State; Track III: Mathematics and Modeling).

The degree information page explains how these categories relate to the degree requirements.

Prerequisites may vary and course sizes may be limited; refer to the individual department websites for details on each course.
