We may be a good choice for you if:
You would like to do significant work in some area of science (any field taught in the College) and combine it with study of the historical emergence of science as the most authoritative and powerful means we have of knowing the world.
You are interested in Big Questions – the existence of God, the nature of free will, the roots of human morality, and more – and would like to understand the ways in which science has shaped or is shaping the ways in which we think about them.
You are interested in the ways in which science is affected by (and in turn affects) important issues in politics, industry and policy, whether climate change, the teaching of evolution in the public schools, the patenting of genes and new forms of life, and more.
You are considering attending medical school, and would like a concentration that allows you to count many of your premed science requirements, while making it possible for you to take classes and do advanced research in the history of medicine, medical anthropology, and health policy.
You are – or aspire to be – a person who is equally literate in the world of science and the world of the humanities and the social sciences.
