Seminars that Fulfill WAY-SMA

Scientific Method and Analysis (SMA)

Scientific literacy is critical to complex problem-solving and touches on many aspects of human life.  Courses in Scientific Method and Analysis will enhance your ability to analyze and synthesize scientific information about the natural and physical world, understand the limitations and strengths of existing theories, ask strategic questions, and assess empirical evidence.

You’ll need to take two courses in Scientific Method and Analysis (SMA).
