The Science, Technology and Society (STS) degree program is an interdisciplinary studies program that focuses upon the relationships between science and culture. The program began in the Fall 2007 semester and as a form of introduction to the college, a symposium of panelists from the faculty was convened to discuss the question "How Green is Central New York?," followed by a film presentation of "An Inconvenient Truth." The event was quite popular with over 200 students, faculty and community members in attendance, from both our main campus and our Norwich campus.
It was decided that the spring symposium should remain a permanent feature of the program and each year hence we have addressed a new issue relating to science, technology and society, issues such as food science and technology, alternative energies, and cyberculture.
