Science in a Changing World at UMass Boston
>From personalized genomics to measurements of sea-level rise, from al
Qaeda websites to citizen technology-assessment panels, from
brain-based education to labor-saving inventions for use in
developing countries, social and scientific changes are intertwined.
"Science in a Changing World," a new graduate track at UMass Boston
prepares students to participate in questioning and shaping the
direction of scientific and social changes, as well as to teach and
engage others to participate in this important endeavor.

Engagement and in Collaborative processes & Problem-Based Teaching
