Interdisciplinary Science

Why limit yourself? Interdisciplinary Science is based more on breadth than on the depth of coverage found in most Science programs.


Take advantage of Laurentian's most flexible study program to earn a science degree tailored to your interests.


Not inspired by traditional undergraduate studies in science? Can't choose a single subject for your career? The Interdisciplinary Science program allows you to study according to your professional and academic abilities and goals.

This program offers a combination of courses in biology, chemistry, computer science, geology, mathematics, and physics. In addition, elective courses deal with ethics, law, the environment, philosophy, religious studies, psychology, and languages.

Enjoy a program that is based more on breadth than on the depth of coverage found in most Science programs.
