Human Reproduction: Sex, Science and Society

John Aitken, Jessie Sutherland, Alan Hayes AM, Kirsty Pringle, Ann Taylor, Catherine Chojenta, Jacqueline Coombe, Marguerite Johnson, James Bennett, Daniela Heil, NewcastleX

A cross-disciplinary look at the biological factors that influence sex, fertility and making babies in modern society.

Are you trying to conceive? Do you want to prevent conception (contraception)? Would you like to know more about your fertility?

Have you considered how social factors influence the choices we make about sex and reproduction? What about the latest technological developments in assisted conception (otherwise known as IVF)? Join world leader in human reproduction, Laureate Professor John Aitken, as we explore the biological, technological, and social factors that influence human reproduction.

In this course you will learn how sperm and eggs are made; the events that result in fertilisation and conception; and how a healthy baby develops and is born.

These biological principles will be studied alongside social factors such as the construct of family, education, poverty, and sexuality.

This course will also examine the enormous role of Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ARTs) such as IVF in modern society.

What will you learn

  • Discuss both male and female reproductive development in humans
  • Describe the processes of fertilisation, conception and pregnancy in humans
  • Define relevant factors limiting human fertility, and how these can be overcome
  • Discuss the ethical issues and standards around ARTs
  • Articulate how access to contraception impacts upon our social, political, and clinical wellbeing
  • Describe issues related to sex and sexualities in Western societies
