EARS 80.02 Astrobiology

This course will explore the nascent field of astrobiology—study of life in the universe.  Students will be introduced to the various research aspects in the fields of biology, chemistry, geology, planetary science, and astronomy that contribute to our current understanding of astrobiology.  Scientific hypothesis testing and evolution will be a course focus as technological innovation continues to shape the field.  Together we will work to address the questions: How does life begin and evolve? Is there life beyond Earth and, if so, how can we detect it?

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.
