Upper-Division Requirements

Through one course in the category of the social impact of science—such as Medical Ethics or Media Technology and Society—students acquire an informed perspective of the role of science and technology in their lives. Upperclassmen also take one course in moral life. These courses are designed to enable students to define their own personal moral values and positions and to enhance their capacity for moral discernment, criticism, and argument. Courses in this category include Racism in America and Contemporary Work-Life Challenges.
