New Linked-Major: College of Integrative Sciences & Seminar Course

Dear Students,

Welcome back to campus!  While you have been away, there have been new developments in the Sciences, which may be important to you.  Since the College was just approved, courses related to the CIS were not listed during pre-registration.

A core mission of this new college is to develop student skills in interdisciplinary thinking and science research that cuts across disciplines. Interdisciplinary approaches are becoming vital for success and growth in our current technology driven society.

To introduce students to these challenges, the CIS is offering a new seminar course, “Research Frontiers in research1 the Sciences” (CIS 221/222).  The course is open to all students who have completed at least an introductory science course, and forms the gateway for students who are interested in the “linked-major” offered by the CIS.  It is available in add-drop.  The 0.50 credit course meets Fridays, 2:40-3:30 p.m.

Visit our webpages (, check out wesmaps, or contact me for further information.

Have a productive semester!   Prof. Francis W. Starr, Professor, Physics Department, and Director, College of Integrative Sciences

HIST 362 for Sophomores!

Dear members of the sophomore class,

researchAre you planning to declare a major in History this year?  Do you think you might study abroad in the fall semester of your junior year?  And are you ready for the intellectual challenge of a lifetime?

If the answer to these three questions is “yes”, then you should consider taking HIST 362 this fall.  This course is required of all History majors and is supposed to be taken in the fall of the junior year.  It is only offered in the fall semester every year.  The History Department has decided to open one section of this course this fall to prospective majors in the sophomore class.
