The Women, Science, and Technology (WST) program links science and technology issues to those more traditionally associated with women’s and gender studies. The WST minor prepares Tech students to live and work in an increasingly diverse world. The minor helps students develop their understanding of the human side of science and engineering as it pertains to both gender issues and inequalities of race and class.
WST courses reflect on the theoretical and practical dimensions of diversity. Students are encouraged to explore the values associated with scientific culture and to synthesize knowledge across disciplines while viewing science and engineering as social and cultural forces that shape the relations between men and women.
Students interested in the minor should consult with their own major advisor and with the LMC academic advisor in.
