LSSCI 200 Science and Society

6 Credits

The effects of the natural sciences and technology on the individual and contemporary society are examined in this course as students explore the sciences and their relationships to social, political, and economic issues. Areas of study vary each semester. Topics of study may include such biological topics as genetics, population, health issues, or ecology; or such physical science areas as physics, chemistry, geology, meteorology, and astronomy. This broad view of science and its impact on society incorporates methods of scientific inquiry and problem-solving techniques through which specific topics are investigated, developed, connected, and applied to both the individual and contemporary society. Relationships between the science disciplines and their connections with current events are also examined.

Prerequisite(s): LSENG 190  and LSLIT 110 .
