Professionals in technically demanding fields are commonly asked to apply their expertise to other seemingly unrelated disciplines. As a result, they must have a comprehensive understanding of not only their own field, but also secondary knowledge of another broadly based, often interdisciplinary, field of study. A chemist might lend his or her expertise to a matter of legal or ethical importance. A curator might evaluate scientific and historical evidence about a painting’s authenticity. A journalist might research a story involving science, medicine, and technology.
Integrated Learning Majors provide broad, interdisciplinary opportunities for students through valuable tools and knowledge in a variety of fields. This synergistic approach adds scholarly mettle to both the major and the interdisciplinary program, while exploiting their connective properties. For example, an undergraduate interested in chemistry could have an integrated learning program in forensic science. Or a student pursuing archeology could have an integrated learning major in ethics, with focus on social science research.
The integrated learning major in Neuroscience can be combined with majors in: Biochemistry, Biology, Biotechnology, Chemistry, Communication Sciences & Disorders (CSD), Computer Science, Linguistics, Nutrition, Philosophy, Physics, Psychology, Public Health, and two majors in Engineering and Computer Sciences (Bioengineering and Chemical Engineering). The ILM in Neuroscience may also be combined with other primary majors with approval of the Neuroscience ILM director.
