COCO 6 Autism: Science, Story, and Experience

What is autism? How do scientists, clinicians, and the public understand it? Can we separate the cultural myths of autism from the medical realities? How do individuals with autism experience the world differently, and how are their lives impacted by public perception of the condition? To address these questions, the course will be divided into three sections: First, students will learn key scientific theories of autism and how to critically evaluate them. Next, they will explore how cultural narratives of autism impact scientific and personal understanding. The course will conclude with a service learning experience, allowing students to experience first-hand the reality of individuals with autism.

Distributive and/or World Culture


The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
