Technology in Business and Society Courses

Students interested in the relationships between technology, business and society may choose to substitute up to two of the required social science and humanities courses with approved courses from the Technology in Business and Society course category. If a course is not on the list below as an approved TBS course, do not assume that it will count as a TBS course even if the course was completed. If you are considering a new course to count as a TBS course, please consult with the RAS Office and/or the undergraduate chair in your department prior to taking the course.

Note that students who choose this option are still required to take at least two social science and two humanities courses and must fulfill the depth and writing requirements for their major. Courses in this category may not be counted as engineering courses.
