Diversity, Culture and Religion in Science

-

Location: Jordan Hall of Science

SC 53320: Diversity, Culture and Religion in Science will introduce students to the role of cultural and religious diversity in science, its importance in an era of globalization, and the interesting questions that it raises. We want our students to be thought leaders in these discussions as they develop. We will recruit top speakers to talk about science and culture, religion and diversity from a sophisticated and scientific level–how these issues have shaped their careers, and how the issues are shaping the world of the future. The course will conclude with a talk on science and religion that demonstrates the vital connections of all these areas and brings them together to prepare our students for that world.
