    This course will explore current topics in the news media which are related to the field of Biology. Students will learn how to interpret a news article, research it, question it, critically evaluate the conclusions of it and discuss the impacts of it on related social and ethical concerns. From this, they can develop an independent understanding of the topic. This will be done through a combination of lectures, class discussions, web search assignments, writing experiences and presentations to the class. This course cannot be used as credit toward a Biological Sciences major or minor.
    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.
