New science classes this spring

cell-WEB

New science classes tackle geological disasters and help you become a better science skeptic.

GS 112: Making Sense of Science

Making Sense of Science (GS 112) is a new, four-credit lab science class that combines biology, chemistry, and physics with political discussion. The class is new for spring term.

You’ll learn how scientists disagree on some of the most hotly debated issues, how to separate science fact and fiction, and how to tell when science is being manipulated for political purposes.

“I’m really passionate about this field and about creating skeptical citizens,” said Professor Dale Champion. “This class is something I’ve been working on for a long time. I can’t wait to get into these really powerful topics.”

GS112 is offered Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays at 10 a.m. The lab portion is held at 9 a.m. Thursdays. The class qualifies as a general education elective and satisfies lab science requirements.

G140: Geologic Disasters

In Geologic Disasters, you'll learn about tsunamis, earthquakes, volcanoes, landslides, and meteoric impacts. The class is three credits and is not a lab class.

The class is offered Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays at 8 a.m., and is taught by Karen Carroll.

Spring term classes start March 31. Registration is now open! See the spring class schedule for details.
