CHEM 195 - The Nuclear Age


FDR: SC
Credits: 3
Planned Offering: Not offered in 2012-2013

This seminar initially reviews the science and technology leading to the development and production of the first nuclear weapons. It then examines the decision to use the atomic bomb against Japan. The final portion of the course addresses the political, social, and environmental legacies of these weapons. Students write a series of short papers, based on their reading of primary and secondary sources, that form the basis for group discussions throughout the seminar. A term paper is required. Not a laboratory course. Settle.
