SCID101 Science, Society and Culture

Science, Society and Cultures explores the complex inter-relationship of science, cultures and social systems. It investigates the scientific method, and explores the way that assumptions, beliefs, and scientific discovery interact to shape both science and the social fabric it is a part of. Case studies demonstrate the effect society has on science, and how new technology and beliefs that result from scientific discovery have an effect on the culture, ethics and belief systems of a society.
