Technology, Society and Human Values is an interdisciplinary program that unites development theories with practice by integrating classroom learning and research with regional, national, and international economic and social development projects and research in which the faculty are engaged. Courses are taught in an interdisciplinary manner, with faculty trained in economics, history, planning, political science, psychology and sociology.
The program prepares students to assume professional roles involving research, consulting, and strategic planning in business, in local, state, national, and international development and planning agencies, and in nonprofit organizations working on economic and social development. Students, if they choose to continue their education, will be prepared to continue matriculation in a wide variety of graduate programs in the sciences, social sciences and humanities, including management and public policy.
