All of us have known students who, for one reason or another, have found it necessary to leave the University of Washington without a B.A. in hand. They relocate out of state, find full-time employment, start families – and all of a sudden that dream of a UW degree recedes into the distance.

Integrated Social Sciences is a fully online interdisciplinary program that allows students who have earned at least 75 credits and have an overall GPA of 2.0 to finish their degrees. Returning UW students currently in the ISS program were formerly pursuing degrees ranging from Philosophy to English to Forestry. Against all expectations, they have returned home to the UW, some after nearly 30 years away, and are on track to degree completion.

Are you interested in scientific research, teaching, health sciences, environmental issues, or other related fields? Are you interested in:

  • Succeeding in introductory biology (BIOL 180, 200, 220) and other bioscience courses?
  • Learning, thinking, and writing like a scientist?
  • Joining a diverse community of UW biology students and mentors?
  • Identifying research, scholarship, and training opportunities?

Students who have not yet taken BIOL 180 are encouraged to apply. Accepted students will participate in BIOL 106 during Autumn Quarter (Tuesdays and Thursdays, 3:00-4:20 pm, 3 credits). This course helps learners define and develop skills for success as science students and plan individualized academic and professional pathways.

“We got the sense that the best way was to study to understand it from our own interests as scientists. And that’s what I do now in my other classes–study as a scientist, to learn because of my interests and to put that information into the things I already know.”

“They encouraged us to be so connected, so that all of us could be better than what we were alone. We learned to see people as someone we could learn from, rather than as someone we needed to compete with.”

Applications will be accepted until spaces are filled, and spaces are limited.
