Interdisciplinary Science and Practice

Do you love science? Do you want to explore more than one discipline? Do you want to examine local, national and global issues from an interdisciplinary perspective? This could be the program for you!

A Unique Program

The BSc in Interdisciplinary Science and Practice integrates concepts and knowledge from different science disciplines to be applied to real world problems through local and global perspectives. This new program builds on the conventional science curriculum to include principles and practice of interdisciplinarity, and equips graduates with the expertise they need to success in the real world.

The degree program provides students with a broad based science education combined with practical skills like science communication, knowledge translation and data analyses.

Along with taking specialized core ISAP courses, students are required to take a minor in a science discipline such as food science, chemistry or physics.  Honours students are also encouraged to complete a second minor within the faculty with learning culminating in an academic capstone experience (group research project, research essay or individual research project).

Armed with both an intensive science back ground and a workplace skillset, ISAP graduates will be prepared to tackle societal issues like food insecurity, climate change resiliency and cybersecurity.

The Interdisciplinary Science and Practice program (ISAP) is focused on giving students the skills they need to be immediately employable, such as how to interact with stakeholders, communicate findings, synthesize evidence and navigate the science-policy interface.
