UGC 303LEC Great Discoveries in Science: The Macroworld


The Macroworld involves larger and longer-term phenomena such as evolution, plate tectonics, astrophysics, etc. UGC 302 and UGC 303 focus upon selected great discoveries of science, presenting a particular body of scientific facts and concepts and connecting them with the process of science, related history and philosophy, and the interdependence of science and technology. These courses engage non-science students in a meaningful analysis of scientific developments and methodology, building on the student's prior knowledge of science, social science, arts and literature. These courses emphasize the central ideas that set the framework for a discipline and its great discoveries. Selected examples from diverse fields provide a breadth that complements the depth offered in the prerequisite introductory-level science course. The course focus varies by section. Coverage may include the biology of women, microbiology in our daily lives, the solar system, or medical implant controversies. Whether the matters be medical, environmental, or issues of national defense, students must be able to sort fact from fantasy, accident from design, research from quackery. They must feel secure enough in the world of science to participate in those decisions which will determine the quality of their lives, and that of their world. Either UGC 302 or UGC 303 meets the general education Depth requirement.
