SCTC 3001. History of Science. 3 Credit Hours.

This course is not offered every year.

The first two objectives of this course are to give the students a working knowledge of the broad developments in science since the ancient world and to give them familiarity with the concept of the Scientific Method necessary for understanding areas of science not covered in the course. The ultimate objective is to provide students with the skill to evaluate claims and classify them as scientific or un-scientific. Students will take an inquiry-based approach through readings and discussions and will address both the scientific history and its role in controversial social and moral issues such as pollution, child labor in the Industrial Revolution, weapons in wartime, attitudes toward women, and science and religion. The course will survey the genesis of the Scientific Revolution and go on to examine the work of scientists in the 16th century through today.
