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.
