For the first time ever, UCLA Summer Sessions will be offering an online Honors Collegium course this Summer 2013 term. HNRS 70A - Genetic Engineering in Medicine, Agriculture and Law, typically taught by distinguished UCLA professor Bob Goldberg in the winter quarter, will be offered in Summer Session A, scheduled from June 24th to August 2nd this year.
Professor Bob Goldberg’s course is designed primarily for non-science students and gives an overview of the science of genetics and the sometimes-controversial legal and ethical issues raised by the use of genetic engineering. Topics covered include genetically modified food, human cloning, stem cells, and DNA testing in crime labs. Video lectures featuring custom animations developed by a team of professionals at the School of Theater, Film and Television make the material easy to understand and review.
