Honours Integrated Science, B.Sc.
Tackling the global challenges of pandemics, climate change and economic competition, requires a new breed of scientist prepared with the broadest of approaches, encouraged to ask creative, critical, interdisciplinary questions and trained to answer these questions with a wide range of tools. The Faculty of Science at McMaster University has chosen to address these challenges with the creation of the Honours B.Sc. Integrated Science (iSci) Program.
This new program will put into practice many of the innovative concepts linking science education and research that leading universities are keen to adopt but have not yet implemented. McMaster University will once more lead the way with this transformative model for teaching science.
The four year undergraduate Honours Integrated Science (iSci) Program at McMaster University demonstrates a holistic view of science through the interaction between various science disciplines. This elite program, with a maximum of 60 students selected each year, also provides students the opportunity to specialize in a selected discipline including chemistry, chemical biology, biology, mathematics, physics, biochemistry, medical physics, earth science and environmental science, geography and environmental science, and psychology, neuroscience and behaviour.
