We are at the threshold of new and fascinating insights into the biology of the living organism. The last 40 years have witnessed an explosive revolution in our knowledge of the fundamental properties of living systems and in our ability to manipulate the molecules that participate in these systems. The new knowledge in neurobiology, biochemistry, molecular biology, physiology, evolutionary biology, and cell biology contributes enormously to our society and to our well being. As our understanding of biology grows and expands, our perspective on the teaching of biology also evolves. The Program in Biological Sciences provides a curriculum in biology that reflects this excitement.
The Integrated Science Program (ISP) prepares undergraduates to do science, to think and to make connections. It trains them to attack problems directly and creatively by understanding and applying basic principles. The courses in ISP are challenging, the professors outstanding, and the opportunities for research extraordinary. If you're seriously considering a career in science, you should consider ISP.
