BIOL 2040 - Biology in Films (3)

This course is designed to expand an understanding and appreciation of Biology in undergraduate non-science majors, using films with a plot emphasis tied to biology.  Students will learn the foundation of the scientific process as depicted in popular films.  Students will also learn how biological concepts are often exploited in films, or are even inaccurate, in order to enhance the movie viewing experience.  Students will discuss the biological concepts presented in the films, and learn how to distinguish between scientific fact and fiction in these films.
