Why choose Multidisciplinary Studies in Science?

The Science College offers highly motivated students in any of the sciences a multidisciplinary program that prepares you for a life of scientific thought and research. In this program — while majoring in your own discipline — you also participate in scientific research projects in each of your three undergraduate years. You’ll take courses that highlight the interrelated nature of the sciences, and you and other Science College students will wrestle with scientific problems, talk with professors and propose new ideas for discussion. This is a challenging program. Usually, Science College students appear as co-authors on papers based on their research.
