FYS 191 Crossroads of the 21st Century

Our society finds itself at a number of critical crossroads. How we proceed will affect our own health, the health of the environment, and may redefine what it means to be human. We will take an interdisciplinary study of: (1) the future of food and its sources (2) the future of energy generation and consumption, and (3) what it means to be human in an era of highly advanced engineering and technological abilities.
