Science, Technology and Society

The Science, Technology, and Society (STS) Program of the Claremont Colleges examines the character and cultural significance of science and technology through interdisciplinary studies in science, humanities and social sciences.

Pitzer, Pomona, and Scripps offer an STS concentration or major. Pomona and Pitzer also offer minors in STS. Harvey Mudd students may concentrate through one of these colleges or may design an Independent Program of Studies in STS at Harvey Mudd.  CMC students have completed the program as an off-campus major

All majors/concentrations include:

  • Four “science and technology practice” courses (science and/or engineering)
  • Four STS “context and theory” courses in historical studies, philosophy, and social science approaches
  • Three “concentration” courses on an S&T issue or in a cognate discipline; this can include an optional thesis
  • STS 190, Senior Integrative Seminar (senior exercise)
