This program is intended to give students a thorough background in basic physics and astronomy, as well as the historical development of modern physical concepts and the relationship of these basic sciences to other fields. It is a particularly appropriate program for those planning to enter careers on which science and technology have a large impact, such as law, business administration, governmental administration, technical writing, and science communication. It is not intended to prepare students for scientific or technical careers, but instead to enable students to understand and evaluate the ever-increasing influence of science and technology on other areas.
