Why Study the History of Health, Science & the Environment?

The History of Health, Science & the Environment minor explores the historical context of health, science and disease. Nature is within us and all around us. Human habitats—starting with our multi-species bodies—are only partly under human control. Inversely, the environment "out there" is deeply influenced by humans and their technologies. History provides extensive evidence for these trans-human relationships. This minor allows students to explore this multi-level interplay—from the molecular level to the planetary—in a variety of times and places.

AREAS OF STUDY:

ADMISSION INFO:

Completion of the minor requires 21 credits. Nine credits must be taken at Stony Brook, with three at the upper-division level. The distribution of the credits should be determined in consultation with the director of undergraduate studies.

After Graduation
