(For non-majors only)
The course will use current events and scientific technologies, identified by the class, to illustrate the impacts of biological science in U.S. and global society. These topics will serve as vehicles to illuminate science philosophy, history, reasoning, and techniques; and to emphasize the importance of science literacy to citizens in a technologically rich democracy. Several laboratory projects will be conducted and reported in different styles with different goals and hypothetical audiences (popular press, professional article, oral news report, platform presentation). This course does not satisfy prerequisite requirements for any other natural science courses.
