Programs and Education

The Center is integrally involved with education. Faculty members affiliated with the Center for Biology and Society participate in graduate and undergraduate degree programs through the School of Life Sciences and the Graduate College. The Center for Biology and Society promotes exploration of conceptual foundations and historical development of the biosciences and their diverse interactions with society. We engage in activities across multiple disciplines that allow opportunities for intellectual ferment and increased impact by creating research and educational collaborations and communication. Graduate programs in the Center focus around Bioscience Ethics, Policy, and Law, and History and Philosophy of Science, as well as Ecology, Economics, and Ethics of the Environment (4E), and for professional development, courses are offered in Responsible Conduct in Research.
