Throughout history, science and technology have consistently transformed society. From medicine to communications to the arts and all points between, our culture is very much a society of science and technology. A systemic awareness of how science and technology both impact and are influenced by society is critical to function as a responsible professional in an increasingly complex world. This course will examine the interrelated roles that science and technology play in society, with a particular emphasis on aviation and aerospace.

This course is designed to help students understand the interrelationship between social change and technological change. This course will help students recognize the particular influence of aviation and aerospace technology on society. This course will help students to develop advanced critical thinking skills regarding the relationship between society and science/technology and develop advanced writing skills for the expression of critical thinking. This course will help students identify important issues in current events that relate to science and technology in society with a special emphasis on aviation/aerospace developments.

Upon completion of the course, students will be able to:

1. Explain how the concepts of social evolution and technological development influence one another.

2. Explain how developments in energy and environmental technology have influenced society and vice versa.

3. Explain how developments in health, medical and biotechnology have influenced society and vice versa.

Located on the Daytona Beach Campus, the Jack R. Hunt Library is the primary library for all students of the Worldwide Campus. The Chief Academic Officer strongly recommends that every faculty member, where appropriate, require all students in his or her classes to access the Hunt Library or a comparable college-level local library for research. The results of this research can be used for class projects such as research papers, group discussion, or individual presentations. Students should feel comfortable with using the resources of the library.
