5 credits

In this course, students critically examine controversies in science. They explore topics including pseudoscience, human cloning, stem cell research, genetically modified foods, and climate change. Students learn to articulate sound arguments for the validity of scientific claims as well as demonstrate an understanding of the reasons why popular beliefs in unsubstantiated claims persist.
