    Networks are everywhere. From the internet to our social interactions and even in our brain, it has become clear that we are surrounded by complex systems of interconnected elements. In this course, we?ll explore how we can better understand the world around us by thinking about systems as networks and examining the specific structure of how network elements are connected. What do social networks and brain networks have in common? Why is that important? How would we design a power grid so that it?s less likely to fail? In addition to learning how to measure features of network organization,we?ll learn how to use computer software to visualize the networks we study. Because network science is highly interdisciplinary field, the course will assume no prior math background, and we will capitalize on the diversity of student interests to study network structure across a wide variety of applications.
    Enrollment Requirements
    Prerequisites: Students who have already successfully completed the first year seminar course may not repeat this course. If you have any questions regarding enrollment for this course, please contact your academic advisor.
      Course Description
    The three credit UB Seminar is focused on a big idea or challenging issue to engage students with questions of significance in a field of study and, ultimately, to connect their studies with issues of consequence in the wider world. Essential to the UB Curriculum, the Seminar helps students with common learning outcomes focused on fundamental expectations for critical thinking, ethical reasoning, and oral communication, and learning at a university, all within topic focused subject matter. The Seminars provide students with an early connection to UB faculty and the undergraduate experience at a comprehensive, research university. This course is equivalent to any 199 offered in any subject. This course is a controlled enrollment (impacted) course. Students who have previously attempted the course and received a grade of F or R may not be able to repeat the course during the fall or spring semester.
