Honors Sciences and the Humanities, B.S.: Humanities Driven STEM Concentration


About the Honors Sciences and the Humanities, B.S. Program


The Bachelor of Science degree (B.S.) in Honors Sciences & the Humanities (HSH) with a concentration in Humanities Driven STEM is designed for capable, curious students who are interested in pursuing a broad and challenging course of study that will prepare them for a variety of careers and a lifetime of active citizenship. The degree offers Honors students interested in engineering, architecture, structural design, urban planning, natural resources, and life cycle analysis the opportunity to contextualize construction, manufacturing, and industrial practices within a discourse on human and natural environments. Students engage with complex questions in the areas of sustainability, marketing, and fabrication even as they connect to the historic and social impacts of the scientific, industrial, and technological revolutions. Many university graduates change careers several times during their lives. Therefore, this degree also emphasizes marketable skills that are portable, such as critical thinking, writing, and problem solving, that ready students for a broad range of career options.
