ISC is an integrated, mathematically and computationally sophisticated immersive introduction to physics, chemistry, molecular biology, and computer science. By teaching these disciplines within a unified framework, we hope to educate a new generation of scientists who can appreciate the connections between the traditional academic disciplines and for whom interdisciplinary science is natural rather than forced. Our course is team-taught by faculty in the departments of Physics, Chemistry, Molecular Biology, and Computer Science. This year-long, four-course sequence typically involves five hours of lecture, one three-hour lab, one three-hour precept, and one required evening problem session per week.
