The Science Fiction Studies (SFS) minor is for students who are interested in learning how people communicate the experience of science and technology across centuries, continents, and cultures. The two core LMC classes required for this minor teach students the history of science fiction across media. The three electives required to complete this minor enable students to connect their study of science fiction to issues of social justice, ethics, artistic practice, and the historic relations of science, technology, and culture.
The SFS minor enhances students’ ability to engage with issues of science, technology, and society as they are represented in the premiere story form of an increasingly technological and global world. It also enables them to better develop the analytic skills and creative mindsets that are crucial for graduate school and for advancements in careers ranging from education to engineering.
Students interested in the minor should consult with their own major advisor and with the Academic Advisor in LMC.
The Science Fiction Studies faculty include:
- Susana Morris
- Aaron Santesso
- Carol Senf
- Lisa Yaszek
