Values in Science & Technology Pathway

The VIST pathway It provides opportunities for students from all majors to critically examine the practice of science, the social impacts of technology, and the role that these play in society. It facilitates intentional and integrative learning by inviting their consideration of the content and context of science & technology, the role of human values in shaping them, and the transformative social implications of these forces. This pathway offers more than 100 classes to choose from; every student must complete four (three for Engineering students).
