The STV Minor
Exploring Complex Questions Where Science and Technology Meet Society
How can we inform our consciences and pursue implementations of scientific and technological developments that are just and respectful of human dignity?
The Science, Technology, and Values program offers the opportunity to acquire a multifaceted understanding of science and technology, so that students acquire the tools they need to confront the complex questions that arise where science and society intersect.
Studying STV can prepare students for a wide variety of future careers in fields such as law, the health professions, public service, the sciences, education, international development, industrial or academic research, or journalism. Undergraduate training in STV can serve as the foundation for graduate studies in fields such as the history and philosophy of science, social studies of science, physics, chemistry, environmental science, bioethics, risk assessment, and public policy.
