Credits in the Major
The major requires a minimum of 30 credits, to include at least 24 credits in history of science, medicine, and technology, and 6 credits in science or mathematics above the elementary level (not to include mathematics courses numbered 223 and below).
One 3-credit course toward the 24-credit minimum may be chosen from approved courses in related disciplines; these courses include Philosophy 519, 520, 521, 523, 558; Sociology 531, 637. Other substitutions may be allowed at the discretion of the undergraduate adviser.
Integrated Liberal Studies 201 or 202 may be used in place of History of Science 201 or 202 to count toward the major requirements; Integrated Liberal Studies 271 may be used as a regular History of Science course.
All majors are required to take History of Science 555, the department's capstone seminar, in the junior or senior year.
