Overview

The Integrated Sciences specialization from University of British Columbia is designed for highly motivated students whose interests in science cross disciplinary boundaries. The specialization allows you to design your own interdisciplinary course of study that better reflects your interests and can help prepare you for additional study in the health sciences, law, journalism, engineering, or business.

Once admitted into the program, you design your upper-level curriculum, which must bridge at least two disciplines within science or beyond. Individual curriculum is supplemented with Integrated Sciences “core” courses (ISCI courses). These courses are highly interactive with a focus on active learning, group discussion, and collaborative research. As an Integrated Sciences student, you’ll be assigned an IntSci Faculty Mentor to help you design your individual course of study.

Your future

The flexible, cross-disciplinary nature of the specialization makes a BSc in Integrated Sciences an ideal undergraduate degree for motivated students entering medical, dental, law, journalism, pharmacy, veterinary medicine, or business school, or for those who plan to pursue graduate studies in a variety of other fields.

You’ll graduate with strong critical thinking, communication, and research skills, and the ability to work effectively in teams. These skills are highly sought after and are transferable to many workplaces.
