UNIB20007 Genetics, Health and Society

Recommended? Yes

Available as breadth? Yes

A fascinating focus on genetics and their place in our multifaceted world: law, science, art, identity, appearance, genetic testing and ethics. Lectures are hit and miss, but different elements will appeal to different students. Assessment is the level you would want from a breadth subject: a group Wiki presentation, three small tests throughout and a final exam. An excellent breadth particularly for Biomedicine of Science students as it contextualises genetics in the wider world, and asks come controversial questions to mull over.
