Why Study Integrated Science - Chemistry at Madonna University?
- An opportunity for students to design their own interdisciplinary course of study
- An admission process which encourages students to develop their educational goals
- Integration courses to guide students in developing a wider perspective of scientific concepts which cross disciplinary boundaries. These courses are intended to develop a broad appreciation of the links between disciplines and their impact on society. The focus of these courses will be on student-initiated learning to reinforce skills in information gathering, analysis and presentation in written, oral, and visual forms
- Prepare students to enter professions of value to our community, through the study of applied science within a social context, or to undertake advanced study
The Integrated Science, IS, program provides a strong science education with an interdisciplinary component. The program offers flexibility in course selection to independently motivate students who have cross-disciplinary interests. IS offers appropriate preparation for many professional degree programs (e.g., in Health Sciences, Education, Law, Journalism, programs) as well as for graduate programs. Through Integrated Science, our students develop a large suite of transferrable skills, including research methods, laboratory and field techniques, teamwork, critical thinking, problem solving, numerical and statistical techniques, planning, organization, and written and oral communication skills. These skills are especially important for careers in scientific research and the medical professions. “We at Madonna University provide our integrated Science students with an all-encompassing science program to be able to meet the demands of increasing modern science teaching at the secondary and/or high school levels. The research and laboratories endeavors allow the students to be able to create laboratory exercises that would be suitable in their future schools for their students using laboratory and lecture knowledge they gain here at Madonna University.
