An enriched first-year experience for 50 exceptional students.
Whether you are treating patients, unraveling galactic mysteries, or modeling climate change, the ability to think and reason at the nexus of traditional disciplines is essential to your success. Become an interdisciplinary scientist as part of a small cohort of 50 York Science students.
Integrated Science connects concepts in biology, chemistry, physics, and mathematics in the context of current scientific frontiers and real-world issues to help students develop a deeper understanding of each discipline through their interdisciplinary connections.
It also develops additional skills in problem-solving, collaboration, communication, and leadership through formal and extracurricular opportunities in a cohort of 50 or fewer students led by great professors. These skills are essential for success in university and beyond!
Integrated Science is an exciting and unique experience that has many benefits for students. After Integrated Science, you continue in the second year of your chosen major or you can switch majors if you find a new passion! Some of our more interdisciplinary majors include Biomedical Science, Biochemistry, Biophysics, and Mathematical Biology.
