Evolutionary concepts help us understand the world.  In turn, new insights continuously change our views on evolution.  Focusing on developments over the past 20 years, this five-session course explores the interrelationships and sometimes surprising connections between evolution and scientific discovery.  A brief overview of classical evolution and a summary of last century’s major contributions will set the stage for a discussion of 21st century evolutionary advances. The course will examine contemporary answers to old evolutionary questions; look at novel approaches in such fields as genetics, microbiology, ethology, ecology, or medicine; and explore emerging evolutionary trends in philosophy and in the social sciences.

Dr. Frank Schickor is the Dean of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) at Berkshire Community College.  He holds an MD from the Friedrich Alexander University in Erlangen, Germany.
