The development of a humanities-driven undergraduate STEM program.

While STEM has made room for STEAM (with the Arts) or STREM (with Reading) or STEMM (with music), the humanities remain still only a subtle presence in STEM education. What if we were to flip this paradigm? What if, instead of only "timbre-ing" STEM, the humanities were to drive its communication, its approach? This project implements a humanities driven STEM (HDSTEM) program in the TTU Honors College that includes 1) a First Year Experience team-taught course that introduces students in their first semester to the idea that the humanities are the impetus for human innovation; 2) a sustained program of HDSTEM courses that shape the chosen majors of students; 3) co-curricular workshops and lectures that put interdisciplinarity into action; and 4) a Summit Experience team-taught course that challenges students at the end of their 4 years to appreciate the interrelatedness of disciplines and the complexity of problems using the vocabulary and the grammar of the humanities.
