BIO 1825 3 Quarter Hours
Course Level CPS - Undergraduate Quarter
Description Designed to offer students the opportunity to experience the interdisciplinary nature of today’s biology and the intimate connections between biological and social issues. Citizens are increasingly called upon to deal with science-based issues throughout their lives, in the foods they eat, the medicines they take, and the air they breathe. Legislators, juries, corporate managers, and individual citizens make important decisions affecting the well-being of society, the family unit, and the individual. Covers current understanding of each issue from different perspectives, including the scientific, individual, community, and global perspectives, and from its social context, both historical and contemporary. This course fulfills the science requirement for any major and serves as an elective course in all science majors.
