Biology with Science and Society offers you the opportunity to study biology within its historical, social, political and ethical context. Many recent scientific, technological and bio-medical topics - including genetic modification, stem cell and cloning research, the uses of DNA profiling and global environmentalism - have generated intense public debate. As students of Biology with Science and Society, you will use historical and related skills to explore the origins and development of these and other issues, and to consider how they impact upon and become a part of our contemporary culture. The study of science and society is taught by specialist staff from the Faculty's Centre for the History of Science, Technology and Medicine. This course provides transferable skills in reading, research, writing, analysis and presentation and is therefore an excellent basis for non-laboratory-based science careers such as management, museum work, science communication or science policy work.
