The Program on Man, Technology, and Society at Saint Louis University. Final Report.
Zetterberg, J. Peter., Ed.
This narrative report on the development phase of the Program on Man, Technology, and Society (MTS), which was established at Saint Louis University in 1974 with the aid of a 5-year curriculum development grant, provides an overview of the original plan and a survey of the program as now established, with an analysis of the extent to which MTS, as originally conceived and proposed, is now successfully operational. Fourteen departments at the University participate in the multidisciplinary MTS Program which has a curriculum of over 50 courses. Students select six to eight appropriate courses to earn a certificate in one of four areas: (1) Technology Studies; (2) Technology, the Future, and the Dynamics of Change; (3) Technology and Human Health; and (4) Technology, Communications, and Culture. A response to the recommendations of the NEH site visit team, which was on campus in the fall of 1979, and a prospectus for the future of the program conclude the report. Appendices listed in the table of contents are not included. (Author/LLS)
