Science Studies (minor)

The interdisciplinary Minor in Science Studies is designed for students in the Faculty of Arts who would like to examine the history, philosophy, sociology, and discourse practices of the scientific disciplines.

The purpose of this program is to promote the study of scientific work and thought from a variety of perspectives usually associated with the humanities and social sciences.

For example, students will explore issues surrounding the production and representation of scientific knowledge, the creation and maintenance of intellectual authority in the practices of the sciences, and the relations between nature and culture.

A background in science is not required, although curiosity about scientific matters is an asset.
