History of Science, Ideas and Innovation

Description
The history of science, ideas and innovation concentration focuses on how science and technology shape every facet of modern human life, but all too frequently, underlying histories and ideas go unexamined. The history of science, ideas and innovation concentration helps students understand how we got to this point (and helps them reflect on what the future might hold) by providing them with a grounding in the social and intellectual issues central to understanding the intertwined histories of science, technology and ideas from past to present..
