Students enroll in the Bachelor of Science in Science, Technology, and Society (STS) because they are interested in discovering how and why the work and communication strategies of scientists, technologists, and other professionals affect the social systems in which we all partake.

STS majors begin their studies by exploring the theoretical and historical foundations of science and technology as they concern politics, economics and culture. During the second and third years, core courses present case studies and practical assignments that build on the fundamentals learned in the first year. Students also select an area of specialization, and identify a topic for their senior projects. STS majors are continuously developing their abilities to analyze complex information, solve critical problems, and demonstrate their ethical awareness and sense of public responsibility.

STS alumni attend medical, law, or business graduate programs. Others go into businesses as diverse as environmental remediation to marketing and management. Still others engage in governmental, public policy, NGO administration or academia.

Albert Dorman Honors College (ADHC) students may participate in accelerated and other pre-professional programs allied with Seton Hall University's law school or UMDNJ's Medicine, Physical Therapy (DPT) or Physician's Assistant programs. STS students are encouraged to participate in NJIT's Cooperative Education program and internships in a corporate, nonprofit or government setting.

The STS Program encourages students in CSLA and other majors to consider a double major or minor in the program. During their senior year, double majors compose a senior thesis that places work done for their primary majors in an STS context.

Concentrations:

Mind, Behavior, and Society
Environmental and Sustainability Studies
Race and Gender in Science in Technology
Politics, History, and Ethics in Science and Technology
Music, Literature, and Culture in a Technological Society

The STS major consists of four components: primary core courses, STS specialization  courses, STS elective courses, and the senior thesis.

Primary core courses, which introduce students to the fundamental connections linking civilization, technology, and the global environment, focus on historical and cultural foundations, basic ideas and values, dominant institutions, environmental viewpoints, policy formation, and sustainable development.

STS specialization courses allow students to concentrate in one of five areas. STS elective courses enable students to develop a broad understanding of the field. The final phase of the STS degree entails preparation of a senior thesis under the supervision of a faculty advisor. This project gives students an opportunity to formulate a highly focused understanding of a topical issue at the interface of science technology and society.

Electives and GUR Requirements

Major Option: 18 credits. Students choose appropriate electives in consultation with an advisor (usually the Director of the STS Program). Courses may be selected from different disciplines but must comprise a coherent program of study within an option.

Basic Social Sciences GUR: Three credits of the basic social sciences requirement must be taken in economics; acceptable courses are Econ 201, Econ 265, or Econ 266 . The remaining 3 credits may be satisfied by HSS 202, STS 257, or STS 258. Students also may take approved introductory courses in basic social sciences at Rutgers-Newark to fulfill this requirement.

Lit/Hist/Phil/STS GUR: Students must take one 300-level course from any of the following fields: literature; history; philosophy; or science, technology, and society (STS); or an approved 300-level course at Rutgers-Newark.

Open Elective in Humanities and Social Science GUR: Students must take one 300-level course from any of the following fields: English (Eng); history (Hist); literature (Lit); philosophy (Phil); science, technology, and society (STS); social science (SS); or theater (Thtr). Students also may satisfy this requirement with Architectural History IV (Arch 382) or by taking an approved 300-level course at Rutgers-Newark.

Cultural History GUR: Take HUM 102, HUM 211 or HUM 212 or HIST 213, or an approved 200-level history course at Rutgers-Newark.

Capstone Seminar in Humanities and Social Science GUR: All students, except those enrolled in the honors college, take one of the following: HSS 403, HSS 404, HSS 405, HSS 406, HSS 407, HSS 408, HSS 409. Students enrolled in the honors college take one either HSS 408H or HSS 491H-499H.

Physical Education GUR: Students who register as full-time undergraduates for two or more consecutive semesters must take two PE courses, one of which must be a 100-level fitness core course. Students are urged to complete the requirement as soon as possible.

Free Electives: Students select appropriate electives in consultation with an advisor.Refer to the General University Requirement section of this catalog for further information on electives.

Co-opCo-op courses replace electives with the approval of an advisor. In science, technology and society, STS 311 and STS 411 are taken for degree credit.



*  The combination of these courses must equal at least 6 credits.
**  In place of this course, students may also take an approved course at Rutgers-Newark; an approved list of courses is published each semester in the course registration bulletin.

p3 *** Students take six credits of Social Science courses in a standard discipline (Political Science, Sociology, etc).
p4 **** Students take six credits in the History of Science or Technology from the following list of courses: STS 320, STS 321, Hist 379, Hist 385, and Hist 386 are preferred but these other courses are also acceptable: Hist 334, Hist 345, Hist 377, Hist 382, Hist 383, Hist 390, and/or History senior capstones where approbriate (with approval of the STS Program Director).
p5 ***** Students take six credits from the following list of courses in STS and the Humanities: Lit 378, Lit 386, Phil 351, STS 342, STS 347, STS 348. (Pre-medical students are urged to take Phil 351 as one of the two courses).
p6 ****** Concentration Elective-Medical Science/Policy. Students should select from the following courses and other electives, in consultation with their advisor: 62:R120:104, 21 & 22: R120:205, Hist 379, Hist 380, Hist 381.
P7 ******* Students take 6 credits of Social Science courses in a standard discipline (Political Science, Sociology, etc.) and 6 credits of Science or Technology electives (Computing, Information Technology, Engineering, Physical Sciences, etc.)
