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.
 
 
-Class Meetings: Tuesdays and Thursdays, 3:30 - 6:00 pm, 5 units, CRN 40380
 
 
 
-A separate 2 unit undergraduate seminar will be scheduled at a time convenient for all
 
students (PLB 98, CRN 37152)
 
 
 
-Students earn general education credits for Science and Engineering and/or Social
 
Sciences.
