The Integrated Sciences specialization is an alternative to a traditional Major or Honours program for students whose interests cross disciplinary boundaries within the Sciences. Students in Integrated Sciences design their own upper-division curriculum, which must bridge at least two disciplines within science or beyond. The Integrated Sciences 'core' courses (ISCI courses) are highly interactive and generally stress active learning, group discussion and collaborative research.
