It is with great enthusiasm that I welcome you to the School of Interdisciplinary Science (SIS) in the Faculty of Science at McMaster University. The School, founded in 2016, provides administrative and pedagogical support to unique programs in the Faculty of Science: Integrated Science, Life Sciences and Medical Radiation Sciences.
Our School’s professors, instructional assistants, staff, teaching assistants and peer mentor undergraduates work together to create and implement novel teaching approaches. These enhance student learning, promote community engagement and prepare our students to be well-rounded members of their communities.
The thread that links our three exceptional programs is the commitment to an interdisciplinary approach to teaching, employing experiential and hands-on opportunities. Core to this approach is our focus on the role of science in addressing contemporary challenges in human health and societal well-being.
