This course explores various ways to counter the myth that science operates independently from society. Not only do the results of science ? knowledge and technology ? affect our social, cultural, and economic lives, but the practice of science is shaped by its social, cultural, and economic context. This course will build student?s scientific literacy and evaluation skills. Through the use of current issues in society and science, students will examine, analyze and evaluate the impact of the scientific issue on society (and vice versa). Semester Typically Taught: Fall, Spring, Summer
