At SCi we create cross-disciplinary curricula to provide science students with the theoretical and practical skills needed to become active citizens in their communities. 


Our courses combine interactive simulation-based pedagogy with facilitated discussions and theoretical grounding across a variety of science and society subject matters.


Our dynamic instructors partner with various experts in science policy, ethics, and community engagement to create inspiring and engaging classrooms for our students, both online and in-person.


Our curriculum offerings range from short seminar-style nanocourses and open-access online learning modules to full semester-length courses. No matter the subject matter, all of our courses are informed by SCi’s values of humility, equity, and innovation.
