Undergraduate Minor in History of Science, Technology, and Medicine

The minor is offered in partnership with the Program in the History of Science, Technology, and Medicine (HSTM), which is housed in the College of Science & Engineering and integrates faculty and students from several departments and programs at the University of Minnesota. Each faculty member has a joint appointment in a department in the College of Science and Engineering, the Medical School, or the College of Biological Sciences, and many have graduate appointments in other departments as well, ensuring close association with other related fields. The program has strong ties with the Minnesota Center for Philosophy of Science, the Department of History, and the science and engineering departments where the faculty hold tenure. 

HSTM offers an array of undergraduate courses covering topics from the history of physics, the Enlightenment in the 18th century to earth and environmental sciences, engineering ethics, and the history of women's health and modern medicine. 

The Director of Undergraduate Studies, Anna Graber, is available to explain the requirements and help students devise an appropriate list of courses. You may reach her at agraber@umn.edu.
