HASS Core

The HASS Core 

As part of their B.S. degree program, all Rensselaer undergraduates take a selection of HASS courses referred to as the HASS Core.  

HASS CORE

Students will be able to:

  • Provide “big picture” as well as community-scale perspective, advancing students’ understanding of how the contemporary, globalized world works, and of the positioning and perspectives of different social groups.
  • Provide both a historical perspective and a sense of how change has been and can be brought about.
  • Introduce, expose, and cultivate diverse communication skills and critical perspectives on communication, encouraging students to continually evaluate rhetorical forms and styles of argument, supporting data, and media representations.
  • Develop a critical perspective and awareness.

Note: If you are a dual major make sure to check with advisors from both majors to ensure you've completed the HASS Core requirement
