Adult education Students completing high school may choose to attend a college or university, which offer undergraduate degrees such as Associate's degrees or Bachelor's degrees baccalaureate. Community college or junior college typically offer two-year associate degrees, although some community colleges offer a limited number of bachelor's degrees.

Surgical experiments[ edit ] Throughout the s, J. Marion Simswho is often referred to as "the father of gynecology ", performed surgical experiments on enslaved African women, without anaesthesia.
Seeing a research opportunity, he cut open her head, and inserted needle electrodes into her exposed brain matter. When the needle entered the brain substance, she complained of acute pain in the neck. In order to develop more decided reactions, the strength of the current was increased Very soon, the left hand was extended as if in the act of taking hold of some object in front of her; the arm presently was agitated with clonic spasm; her eyes became fixed, with pupils widely dilated; lips were blue, and she frothed at the mouth; her breathing became stertorous; she lost consciousness and was violently convulsed on the left side.
The convulsion lasted five minutes, and was succeeded by a coma. She returned to consciousness in twenty minutes from the beginning of the attack, and complained of some weakness and vertigo. Bartholow's research report  InDr.
Arthur Wentworth performed spinal taps on 29 young children, without the knowledge or consent of their parents, at the Children's Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts to discover whether doing so would be harmful.
Leo Stanley, chief surgeon at the San Quentin Prisonperformed a wide variety of experiments on hundreds of prisoners at San Quentin. Many of the experiments involved testicular implants, where Stanley would take the testicles out of executed prisoners and surgically implant them into living prisoners.
In other experiments, he attempted to implant the testicles of ramsgoatsand boars into living prisoners. Stanley also performed various eugenics experiments, and forced sterilizations on San Quentin prisoners.
A review of the medical literature of the late 19th and early 20th centuries found more than 40 reports of experimental infections with gonorrheal culture, including some where gonorrheal organisms were applied to the eyes of sick children. Army doctors in the Philippines infected five prisoners with bubonic plague and induced beriberi in 29 prisoners; four of the test subjects died as a result.
He did this without the consent of the patients, and without informing them of what he was doing. All of the subjects became sick and 13 died.
Vincent's House orphanage in Philadelphia, causing permanent blindness in some of the children and painful lesions and inflammation of the eyes in many of the others. In the study, they refer to the children as "material used". Knowles released a study describing how he had deliberately infected two children in an orphanage with Molluscum contagiosum —a virus that causes wartlike growths—after an outbreak in the orphanage, in order to study the disease.
Hideyo Noguchi of the Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research injected hospital patients some of whom were children with syphilis.
He was later sued by the parents of some of the child subjects, who allegedly contracted syphilis as a result of his experiments. In the experiment, impoverished black males who had syphilis were offered "treatment" by the researchers, who did not tell the test subjects that they had syphilis and did not give them treatment for the disease, but rather just studied them to chart the progress of the disease.
Bypenicillin became available as treatment, but those running the study prevented study participants from receiving treatment elsewhere, lying to them about their true condition, so that they could observe the effects of syphilis on the human body.
By the end of the study inonly 74 of the test subjects were alive.We show, via a massive (N = ,) experiment on Facebook, that emotional states can be transferred to others via emotional contagion, leading people to experience the same emotions without their awareness.
We provide experimental evidence that emotional contagion occurs without direct interaction between people (exposure to a friend expressing an emotion is sufficient), and in the .
