SCI 200 - Science Forward: A Framework for Scientific Inquiry (3 Credits)

Prerequisite: None
A survey of life and physical sciences focusing on the common skills that all scientists use when they do science. Includes life and physical science contexts for these skills. Begins with an introduction to concepts in philosophy of science that help frame the interdisciplinarity and skills-focus of the course. Fields of science are then covered in roughly scale order, from large (Astronomy) to small (Medicine and Drug Design). Additional topics such as climate change, the water cycle, urban ecology, and neuroscience/artificial intelligence.
