Students must major in computer science, biology, chemistry, earth and environmental science, sustainability science, neuroscience, or physics.
Only one course can be from the student’s major department. At least 12-credits must be from non-FYW courses and above the entry level (100). Only one course can be a May Experience course and only one course can be a FYW. No pass/fail courses options can count toward the concentration.
Potential May X courses include EDU-265: International Perspectives on Public Education (May X-travel study), POL 416 Farm, and EDU-115: Depiction of Schools on Film.
The Interdisciplinary Minor Oversight Committee will continue to review the content of potential FYW courses based on the relevance of those courses to (i) exposing students to how individuals come to understand larger issues through social institutions; and/or (ii) explicitly studying scientific intersections in specific disciplines including philosophy, history or religion. Potential FYWs include FYW-1139: God and Darwin, FYW-1146: Neuroethics, FYW-1120: Medicine, Morality and Culture, FYW 1105: Disease and Culture, and FYW-1127 To Walk the Land.
