The College of Science's integrated science curriculum spent a year in development before it launched in the fall 2011 semester. Today, the approach appears to be accomplishing its mission of preparing future generations of scientists to tackle real-world problems using a broader knowledge of the sciences.
The lab portion of integrated science curriculum is organized into modules where teams of students tackle some of the most challenging issues that face communities around the world, such as delivery of drugs and nucleic acid therapeutics or understanding chemical kinetics and motion.
