This upper division General Education course is designed for students pursuing a bachelor of science degree within the California Community College system. The course explores the history of science and technology, from initial Ptolemaic and Aristotelian understandings of the universe, through the challenges brought by the scholars of the Scientific Revolution, to the modern innovators of scientific developments and advancements in technology. The course provides an overview of how individuals, societies, and nations were impacted by these developments and how science and technology impact political, social, economic, and cultural changes over time. Since both science and technology are vital in the twenty-first century, this course aims to highlight the long history behind each from a global historical perspective.
