In this course, you will be introduced to the interdisciplinary field of Science, Technology, and Society. This humanities-based course will challenge you to consider how scientific and technological advancements have shifted societal expectations around life and death, efficiency and authenticity, and agency and obedience. How should we define “progress” in a digital age? How do scientific advancements improve or disrupt an individual’s quality of life? What are the impacts of new technologies on modern democracies? And, do scientific advancements come with a particular responsibility—and a particular power? This course is part of the Leadership Institute Online, a four-week academic program that helps students cultivate the knowledge, skills, and attitudes associated with effective and socially responsible leadership. The core elements of this unique program include the academic content based on the course of one's choosing and leadership content common to all courses, which includes the development of an Action Plan.
