ITEC 2001 - Technology and Society♦


(5 cr.) The synergistic bond between technology and culture has existed from the beginning of civilization with the invention of simple tools to stay warm and store goods, to more complex, contemporary inventions, such as computers. This relationship is vital to our existence, but also warrants both social and ethical consideration, monitoring, and regulation. In this course, students examine the relationship between information technologies and core social concerns, such as privacy, democracy, equity, security, economic progress, and intellectual property rights. Using relevant articles and classic literature in the field, students evaluate existing and emerging technologies taking into account the social, ethical, and legal considerations inherent in the design and use of these technologies.
  (Prerequisite(s): ITEC 1020.)
