HTS Major Information for Current Students

History, Technology, and Society (HTS) is an interdisciplinary major comparable to traditional majors in history and sociology, but offers several unique attributes which gives HTS majors an edge over other liberal arts majors. A degree in HTS requires broad-based training in humanities, mathematics, computing, science, and social sciences, giving our majors a truly rigorous and broad education. The HTS program offers a distinctive focus on global issues related to the origin and impact of technology and science providing students with the critical tools needed to understand the development of the modern world.


History, Technology, and Society (HTS) majors are encouraged to meet with their academic advisor to plan schedules, verify degree requirements, and develop an overall plan of study. HTS majors can access advising information via the Canvas site "HTS Major Advising." Email Sonya Boadu with any advising questions you might have.

The advisor can also offer guidance about study abroad and research opportunities, internships, careers, and a wide range of other issues.

Sonya Boadu (Old Civil Engineering Building, Room 106) advises all undergraduate HTS majors, minors, and certificate earners. She also handles all change of major, readmission requests, and transfer credit evaluations.
