The Interdisciplinary Science program aims to democratize science. Courses teach science through context and the curriculum is designed to navigate students through microscopic and macroscopic scales (atomic, molecular, cellular, populations, and ecosystems). Students can study Interdisciplinary Science as a major, a minor, or as part of a self-designed major.
A strong focus of our program is the connection between science and social justice. For a review of the history of this connection see this blog post by Joe Graves published in 2016. More specifically, we use a planetary health framework that address health, environment and equity. For more information visit the Lang website.
