Fall 2022 Courses

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: Math, Maps, and Modeling).

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

Prerequisites may vary and course sizes may be limited.

Please consult the individual department websites for the most up-to-date information regarding course schedules and modalities.

Virtual: a course that is completely online
Hybrid: a course that can be taken in-person or remote
In-person: a course that requires any attendance in-person/on-campus
