The Baylor Graduate Seminars in Science and Religion are designed to prepare students for teaching and research careers in the STEM fields by exploring questions that continue to spark controversy in the popular imagination: Does modern science undermine Christian belief? Is faith a hindrance to objective scientific research? Does it matter if nearly half of the US population rejects evolution? What can science educators do to help students come to terms with claims that appear to conflict?
For the 2014-2015 academic year, the seminars will explore contemporary issues facing those who teach in the STEM fields.
