4 credits of CHEM 280, IdLS 391, or GSCI
The Science in London program is designed for IdLS and General Education students to explore the scientific basis of our understanding of our physical universe, with an emphasis on British contributions. We will examine the scientific and social forces behind key scientific issues such as stem cell research, health care and climate change, focusing on differences between U.S. and U.K attitudes and responses. As resources, we will use selected readings from science magazines and videos, as well as visits to Stonehenge, the Royal Observatory at Greenwich, Darwin’s residence, Cambridge University and City, and numerous London museums. We will also explore London’s art, culture and 2000-year old history. Come live and learn in this global, historical, modern, and vibrant city.
