SCE 5192: Science and Society (3 cr.)**
In this course we investigate some of the ways in which the natural sciences (i.e. biology, chemistry and physics) have permeated the fabric of modern society. Science and Society consists of a combination of lectures, videos and tutorials (in which active student participation is expected) geared to stimulate thought-provoking discussions. In our examination of the impact of science and technology on society, students will examine commonly shared beliefs and misconceptions. Topics may include: bioscience research and the public good, global climate change, energy resources and management, clean air and water, the ramifications of scientific fraud and the prevalence of pseudoscience in the modern age. Students will thus be better equipped to continue their particular studies in such fields as education, medicine, journalism, science and others.
