Science, Technology, Engineering, & Policy (STEP)


capwflags.jpgA minor STEP. A major perspective.

The Science, Technology, Engineering, and Policy (STEP) Minor and ASI from HASS explore the social, political, and policy context for science, technology, and engineering.

Our lives are affected by public policies – whether they are about deep-water petroleum extraction, stem-cell research, nuclear power, or genetically modified organisms. These policies have economic, environmental, ethical, political, and personal outcomes ranging from how we consume products and services to how society sustains human health.

STEP takes you beyond Earth, Energy, and Environment by demystifying policy making processes and their interactions with science, technology and engineering. Today more than ever, we need technically-trained engineers and scientists who can understand, navigate, and shape these policy making processes.
