An Integrated Science and Technology Undergraduate Curriculum.
Ramsey, Jackson E.
The College of Integrated Science and Technology (CISAT) at James Madison University was founded to educate and graduate a well-rounded science student, one educated in science and technology but in a very different way than traditional programs. This document contains information about mission and objectives, curriculum, faculty, and students of this program. The curriculum is broad-based multidisciplinary exhibiting the natural connections among science, mathematics, and technology, and using expertise from the fields of modern communication to present science in the context of real-world global issues and within the complex and disorganized environment of contemporary social issues. The first 2 years of the program consist of courses in four main areas: analytical methods, issues in science and technology, connections, and general education. In the junior year students take courses in six strategic technology sectors: instrumentation and measurement, energy, environment, engineering and manufacturing, knowledge management, and biotechnology. The senior year is continued study of one of the strategic technology sectors or some other concentration. (MKR)
