STS 211 - Values of Professionals

Examines the ways technical and non-technical professionals attribute worth to an idea, action, or object. Develops the student’s abilities to discern, in the values typical of specific occupations, elements of the job (monetary gain), the calling (service and self- fulfillment), and the profession (conformity to “guild” standards). Representative literature is read and discussed; each student is expected to speak and write articulately about values issues and to conduct elementary research in the topic. (IR)
