The Integrated Science program is a unique, interdisciplinary, research-based science program targeted toward highly motivated, high achieving students. The 4-year, direct entry program takes an exciting new approach to the study of science at the undergraduate level and will provide students with knowledge, skills and tools to excel in their future careers.
A major part of the program, from Level I, will center on supervised inquiry-based learning. The learning experience will be heavily project-oriented, rather than course oriented. At all stages, the supervised learning will also be interdisciplinary.
In Levels I and II, the curriculum content will be taught in a fully integrated way, unlike any program that currently exists in Canada. Essential knowledge and skills from each of the fundamental scientific disciplines will be linked partly through ‘thematic modules’ that emphasize the overlapping content between discipline areas. The iSci program culminates with a mandatory Honours Thesis during students fourth year.
