Science course offers integrated curriculum

The University of Richmond is paving the way for a new way to study science, one that breaks down the barriers between biology, chemistry, physics, math and computer science and fuses them into a single science "supercourse" for first-year students. The yearlong class, which will begin in the fall semester of 2009, will tackle pertinent science questions, including modeling HIV proteins and how they bind to drugs -- from an interdisciplinary perspective. "We have thrown out the rule book and are looking at a new, different way to teach science," said Carol Parish, a chemistry professor who will co-teach the course. The integrated class is being developed and taught by ten faculty members from the contributing disciplines, who met weekly last spring and summer and twice a week this year to generate ideas.
