Combining STS with other Disciplines
Students at St. Thomas can combine interests in more than one field by completing a double major, which means they must satisfy the requirements for a major in two different areas. Students interested in science journalism, for example, can obtain a double major in Science and Technology Studies and Journalism. Recent honours graduates from the STS Programme have graduated with a second major in Philosophy and in Anthropology. For more information on the course requirements to fulfil a double-major, contact the STS Director.
