Concentration in STS

A concentration in STS simply consists of three STS Subjects, at least one -- and not more than two -- of which must be selected from the Tier I list. A concentration can become a minor by adding three additional subjects (one of which must be STS.091).

Procedure for proposing and completing a concentration in STS:

Approval for both the paper AND online concentration proposal and completion forms require an in-person meeting with the STS Concentration Advisor, Professor Clapperton Mavhunga. His office hours for fall 2014 are Thursdays from 2-4pm in E51-194c. If you have class during that time, please email the STS Academic Administrator, Karen Gardner, to make alternate arrangements.

Students graduating in September 2014, February 2015, or June 2015 should continue to use the paper form.

Students graduating after June 2015 should use the online form. The Concentration Form can be found at
