Science Gateway Seminar I
This is a two-semester sequence, two credits each semester. Successful completion of the sequence will fulfill the student's First-Year Seminar requirement. Course content will vary with instructor, but will focus on discussion of topics with broad societal impact, and will have important scientific underpinnings, with a particular focus on biochemistry. Using this approach, students will become increasingly familar with and experienced in scientific discourse, the scientif method, and important new scientific findings. Using this scientific framework, the course will address objectives of the UMass Boston First Year Seminar Program.
