Tomorrow’s scientific discoveries and innovations will grow from the research and education pursued in today’s great universities. From work in neuroscience and emerging fields like bioinformatics to the widespread applications of nanoscience and studies of the living ocean, science will broaden and deepen our understanding of life, the Earth, and the universe. We created the Freshman Science Honors program to provide promising students like you with the fundamental knowledge you’ll need to shape your future in science. The program includes advanced versions of general biology and general chemistry, which are taken in your freshman year.
