Course description

Biology plays a crucial role in shaping 21st-century societies. Biological processes impact humanity profoundly, and biological methods can challenge long-standing norms, including human rights. Each person is unique due to genetics and upbringing, making societal responses to biological issues fair to some and unfair to others. Clear and straightforward communication of biological processes, methods, and potential injustices is essential, without oversimplifying. In the "Biology in Society" program, we aim to provide students with a deep understanding of genetics, developmental biology, evolution, reproduction, and physiology in both animals and plants, emphasizing their societal relevance. We cover research ethics, animal testing, animal welfare, science communication, and the societal implications of science. One semester is dedicated to hands-on research projects in laboratories chosen by the students. This program equips students with both theoretical knowledge and practical skills, preparing them to navigate and address the complex biological issues that influence our world.
