Footnotes


  1. Students are advised, but not required, to pursue a design-oriented course during this semester.
  2. The technical option can be counted toward the requirements of a dual major degree, or it can be four courses in a single field that are all taken for a grade, of which two are at the 4000 level. HASS technical option sequences may be approved by the adviser.
  3. Candidate courses include STSH 4210, STSS 4310, STSS 4350, STSH 4510, STSS 4560, and STSS 4960.
  4. The STS Senior Project can be combined with the Capstone Design Studio to make an eight-credit capstone studio project. The Capstone Design Studio may be taken as an independent course with an STS faculty member of an approved design studio.
