|Description:||The Honours Integrated Science program is an interdisciplinary, research-based science program targeting highly motivated, high-achieving students. The science curriculum will be taught in a fully integrated way, and will allow students to understand how knowledge has accumulated within and across scientific disciplines, and how new scientific thought is created. Beginning in Level I, students will engage in research and will have opportunities throughout each level of the program to work with faculty members on interdisciplinary research projects in laboratory and field settings. Research collaborations and internships with government, industrial and community partners will also be encouraged. The Integrated Science program will intentionally teach scientific “literacy” in its broadest sense and students will learn and develop skills in the areas of scientific writing, research ethics, and critical thinking.|
