The School of Interdisciplinary Science brings together three unique, interdisciplinary programs: Honours Integrated Science (iSci), Honours Life Sciences, and Medical Radiation Sciences.
At the School, we focus on fostering exploration and discovery while emphasizing experiential, collaborative and student-centred learning.
We welcome faculty members and staff from different disciplines and backgrounds, creating a unique, supportive learning environment. The School strives to be a national and international centre for interdisciplinary science education, and an incubator for ways to enhance student learning and help students reach their full potential.
Biology students develop a range of skills that are easily transferred to a wide range of careers.
Graduates have pursued careers in the following areas:
- Climate Change
- Environmental Assessment
- Environmental Policy
- Environment and Health
- Geographic Information Science
- Mineral Exploration
- Petroleum Exploration
- Urban Planning
Areas of Research
Communication is a critical part of the scientific process. The landscape of science communication is changing, and scientists and science communicators face new challenges in reaching and engaging varied audiences. Our faculty pursue research aimed at understanding these challenges.
SIS-led community engagement projects are designed with thoughtful collaboration among students, faculty, and community partners. Each project aims to generate learning and teaching environments so that everyone takes on the role of teacher and learner to ensure reciprocal impact.
