-
+
-
The course provides non-biology (particularly non-science) majors and entering biology students
+
-
with a foundation in molecular biology, genetics and genomics as it applies to genetic engineering
+
-
and to address the social, legal, and ethical issues that arise from emerging new genetic
+
-
technologies in medicine, agriculture, and law.  A major goal of this class is to put genetic
+
-
engineering into a scientific, historic, and social perspective so that students can make
+
-
objective decisions about how this technology should be used in the future.  This is a highly
+
-
interactive, team-oriented, problem-based, course that teaches students how to think critically
+
-
about experimental science and the societal issues raised by advances in genetic engineering,
+
-
genomics, and human reproduction.  The course is organized into three parts: (1) an interactive,
+
-
media-oriented  lecture section that includes hands-on "experiments" and demonstrations, (2)
+
-
films and guest- speakers that bring real-life societal issues into the classroom, and (3) a
+
-
separate undergraduate seminar that focuses on Scientific American articles and is taught by
+
-
teaching assistants. The course will be offered in a distance learning format with a class on the
+
-
same topic at UCLA and Tuskegee University.  Thus, students will have the opportunity to
+
-
interact with students and a professor at other campuses.
