Certificate in STS: Basic Courses
The STS program requires 9 credits of Basic Courses and 12 credits of Elective Courses. Students must obtain prior approval of the director before counting courses toward their individual STS course of study. For guidance, see below and under the Elective Courses link for a list of approved courses.
- A science or technology course such as a Marquee Course in Science and Technology
- An introductory history of science or history of technology course such as HIST 175
- The sophomore capstone course CPSP 227 Science, Technology and Society
- The STS capstone course ENES 440 [pdf] for seniors
The University Certificate program in STS is open to any student at UMCP. The 100- and 200- level courses required of the University Certificate in STS also serve to fulfill the College Park Scholars program in STS, so a Scholars graduate needs only a few more courses to complete the University Certificate.
