Humanities General Education: A Pathway in Philosophy for Engineering Majors

Planning a general education curriculum pathway in philosophy for students enrolled in engineering degree programs.

California State University San Marcos seeks a Planning grant to design a Humanities General Education pathway for undergraduate Engineering majors. The pathway will consist largely of coursework in Philosophy and will be supplemented by a program of co-curricular events, gatherings, and student engagements. Philosophy courses will be redesigned explicitly to address topics and issues of relevance to engineering as a professional field and social enterprise. The curriculum will focus on the ethical and social dimensions of engineering as a human enterprise. A team of colleagues from Philosophy and Engineering will integrate topics of relevance to engineering within Philosophy GE courses; explore the feasibility of first-year student learning communities; and outline a program of co-curricular events and activities, featuring lectures, films, and panel discussions that will include in-service professional engineers as guest speakers.
