SC301 Science, Technology, and Society
Prerequisite: EN 102
This course is designed specifically to engage the non-scientist. Real-life examples in the form of newsworthy stories are used to teach the material in context and demonstrate the interrelationship between scientific inquiry, technological changes, and society. This interdisciplinary approach will promote critical thinking and enable the student to integrate scientific knowledge acquired in the fields of cellular biology, molecular biology, biotechnology, stem cell research, nutrition, evolution, microbiology, and environmental science along with the social implications of scientific discoveries. Students will explore the benefits and the risks of advances in scientific knowledge and technology. A library component is required.
