Life Science is an interdisciplinary major that explores living organisms and life processes. Interdisciplinary majors offered by the College of Arts and Sciences provide interesting options for those who have not chosen a specialized major. They offer opportunities to create individual fields of emphasis for students who wish to pursue multidisciplinary solutions to today's complex problems. Close cooperation between students and advisors is STRONGLY recommended to design programs to meet individual needs, interests, career goals and requirements of the major.
