Attention 3rd, 4th and 5th Year Honors Program Students... There are seats open in the Honors Senior Seminar!

Hello and welcome back to all of our Honors Students,

 

Our office wanted to make you aware that there are still open seats in the 1 credit Senior Seminar ITDS-450H~Honors Capstone Seminar.  This course is  being offered in the fall term on Tuesdays from 11:00AM - 12:00PM.

 

If you are a 3rd, 4th or 5th year student and have not yet fulfilled this Honors Program requirement please consider enrolling in this section for the fall.

 

Course Description:

The course uses a discussion format to help students wrestle with social and ethical issues associated with the role and uses of natural science, mathematics, and data science in the modern world. Students will be challenged to reflect on their own role and responsibility as citizens. Students will engage readings about ethics and misconduct in science, and will discuss repercussions of ethical violations. The course will also require investigations into cases of scientific ethical dilemmas.

This course fulfills the final requirement for students in the honors program.

 

Textbook:

Ethics in Science Ethical Misconduct in Scientific Research, 2nd Edition, CRC Press

 

 

If you want to see these, or other, Honors Courses, you can view them on our website under Current Students or search in SIS using the course attribute 'HNRS' and attribute value 'HONORS.'
