Science and Society Program

Discover the interdisciplinary connections that link the biological, physical and social sciences with societal issues and cultural discourses.

The program

Science and Society is an interdepartmental teaching program administered by the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences that offers students throughout the campus the opportunity to discover the connections that link the social, biological, and physical sciences with societal issues and cultural discourses. Course work examines discovery processes in relation to societal values, public policy and ethics, including issues associated with cultural diversity. Whenever possible, opportunities outside the classroom are included as part of the learning experience.

The Science and Society teaching program serves students of all majors and interests. It can allow lower division students who have not yet declared a major a meaningful context for exploring diverse subject matters. The minor for the program includes, in addition to Science and Society courses, upper division courses from both the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences and the College of Letters and Science in the areas of history and philosophy of science, policy and decision making, communication of science, and culture, ethics and applications.
