Students at Missouri University of Science and Technology will soon be able to combine their technical know-how with a solid foundation in the humanities and social sciences by earning a bachelor of science degree in history. This new degree will help bridge the gap that often separates STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) fields from humanities and social sciences.
A group of students from Missouri University of Science and Technology will earn six hours of history and French course credits while they explore the battlefields, museums and beaches of France this spring. They will also share their experiences on a blog hosted on Missouri S&T’s website as part of their grade.
