Science in Society AS Level at Godalming College

Course description

How do you decide which cancer treatments should be available on the NHS and who gets them? How can you tell if global warming is fact or fiction? Should we allow genetic screening of unborn human foetuses? Big Bang or Creation? These are just some of the controversial questions that we address within Science and Society.

During this course you will explore and critically evaluate issues, the science behind them, how they influence society and how society influences science. The learning will involve thought, argument, data analysis, reading and writing about science.
