HIST 49400 - Science And Society In American Civilization


Credit Hours: 3.00. This course examines the development of science in the United States from colonial times to the present. Emphasis in the earlier periods is placed on comparison and contrast of the American scene with that of Europe. Subsequent treatment deals with industrialization, and maturation of the American scientific community, and the increasing social effects of science. Among those considered are the forces making for urbanization, for greater interdependence among science, industry and government, and for repercussions in intellectual affairs.
