College of Integrative Sciences

Tomorrow's scientists will face challenging problems in such diverse areas as energy, public health, and the environment, among others. Meeting these challenges requires a broad knowledge base together with creative problem-solving approaches. The College of Integrative Sciences (CIS) is dedicated to equipping Wesleyan students with the creative, quantitative and integrative skills to meet these challenges. At the CIS, students develop expertise in multiple disciplines combined with research methods to become creators of knowledge at the forefront of our changing world.

Wesleyan enjoys a distinguished history in scientific research dating back to the 1860s. The CIS is an integral part of Wesleyan's continued commitment to interdisciplinary research training and the advancement of scientific knowledge.
