Integrative Science Major
Unique to our major is the chance for students to integrate their multiple scientific interests at various integration points: one at the sophomore year, junior year, and senior year by participation in the capstone.
Interdisciplinary courses held during the sophomore, junior, and senior year; student learning outcomes for the major are assessed. These include competencies in Literacy (quantitative and qualitative), Communication, Inquiry, and Integration.
Learning Outcomes scaffolded throughout the major:
Students will identify, locate, evaluate, and effectively and responsibly use quantitative and conceptual information to share scientifically related information.
Students will use oral and written communication to purposefully and effectively convey scientific information.
Students will effectively use the scientific process to evaluate methodology and original data to synthesize a conclusion based on this evaluation and in the context of disciplinary theories and the scholarly literature.
Students will effectively synthesize concepts, scientific processes, and/or theories from at least two scientific disciplines to help understand and/or solve a scientific question or problem.
