This course examines the role of technology and science during World War II. Among the technologies that are considered are some that were inherited from World War I and much improved (e.g., tanks, airplanes, aircraft carriers, and submarines). Others were completely new and required considerable scientific input to be developed (e.g., radar, code breaking by the use of computers, jet engines, ballistic missiles, antibiotics, and the atomic bomb). Credits: 3.
Prerequisite: Completion of first year writing requirements and One 2000 level elective from the STS Cluster. Notes: Satisfies an HuSS Elective.
