SCNC 4001 - Analyzing Contemporary Scientific Controversies♦


(5 cr.) 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.
♦ Students may take this as a non-degree course, which means they do not have to be enrolled in a program. Contact an Enrollment Advisor [1-866-492-5336 (U.S.);1-443-627-7222 (toll)] for more information.
