This unit will help students develop the capacity to:
• Analyze social change by looking at the history of science and technology, recognizing uneven distributions of wealth and rights.
• Think critically about contemporary social problems, recognizing the matrix of factors (economic, technical, biophysical, cultural, etc.) that shape problems and constrain solutions.
• Analyze multiple viewpoints and cultural differences, adopting a global perspective and social responsibility.
• Creatively access, interpret, and communicate research resources, applying social science and humanities knowledge to real-world challenges.
