Plants, Parasites, and People is an exciting, hands-on course designed to provide real science experiences for non-science majors. Lectures use relevant examples — cutting-edge and historic — to illustrate science and biological concepts. Lab investigations foster exploration and discovery with dynamic, real-life science experiences.
The course is divided into three units:
Unit I: Plants, Pathogens, and Disease
Unit II: From Genes to Agriculture
Unit III: Ecosystems
Grades are based on three unit exams, laboratory investigations, a group project and participation.
