Tier I Subjects

STS subjects cover a wide variety of topics, so what is the best way to choose the ones that match your interests? We suggest that you start by taking one of the following Tier I subjects...

STS.001 Technology in American History(CI-H)
STS.003 The Rise of Modern Science(CI-H)
STS.004 Intersections: Science, Technology, and the World
STS.006J Bioethics (CI-H)
STS.007 Technology in History (CI-H)
STS.008 Technology & Experience (CI-H)
STS.009 Evolution & Society (CI-H)
STS.010 Neuroscience & Society (CI-H)

Each of the Tier I subjects cover very different topics, but they all give students a core understanding of the main theories and issues in the field of STS.

Starting with the class of 2014, students who concentrate, minor or major in STS will need to take at least one Tier I subject. Tier I subjects prepare students to take any Tier II STS subject listed in our five cluster areas. Students may also take more than one Tier I subject.
