STS Learning Outcomes

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.
