In Seminar 3, University Scholars analyze science and technology that have had an impact on contemporary New York. These may include science and technology, the computer, urban health issues, the environment, and energy. The seminar addresses the intellectual and historical roots of the semester's topic, as well as its ethical, legal, social, and economic ramifications. Students read scientific literature and learn the technical concepts necessary to understand their readings. Seminar 3 also engages students in the process of scientific inquiry as they investigate questions relevant to the seminar and to their lives. In-class work and homework assignments are enriched by visits to such institutions as the Hayden Planetarium, the Mount Sinai Medical Center, and other important research centers.
