Lyman Briggs College was founded at Michigan State University in 1967 with the mission of bridging the divide between C. P. Snow’s "two cultures" of the sciences and the humanities. It is the longest-running program of its kind on a research-extensive campus in the United States. The faculty, active and accomplished scholars whose primary focus is undergraduate education, span the sciences from astrophysics to zoology and also the history, philosophy, and sociology of science (aka HPS). Students choose among three dozen majors, coordinated with STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) departments across the campus, and they balance their technical coursework with classes on the societal, historical, and ethical context of science.
