College of Liberal Arts
  • Program Type: Undergraduate free-standing minor
  • Requirements for this program are current for Spring 2012
  • Required credits in this minor: 14
The undergraduate minor in the history of science, technology, and medicine (HSTM) offers the student a convenient way to bring together coursework at the upper division level (3xxx-5xxx), undertaken in history of science and technology courses (HSCI) and history of medicine courses (HMED) into a coherent program that reflects a humanistic background to the basic applied sciences, technologies and/or healthcare professions. Students interested in the HSTM minor should consult with the director of undergraduate studies for the HSTM program and draw up a plan of study that represents a coherent theme within the history of sciences, technology, and medicine. Normally such a coherent program entails survey coursework in the history of science, the history of technology, or the history of medicine, along with more advanced historical work around a specific field (science, technology, or medicine) or theme (focus on a particular time period, geographical focus, type of history, etc.).
