​Two-For-One Learning Ex​​perien​ce​​​​

​The Integrated Biology and Chemistry (iBC) course series provides students with the unique opportunity to study the two sciences simultaneously​ in both introductory courses and labs over two semesters. Research done by UD's Interdisciplinary Science Learning Laboratories (ISLL) has shown that students who have taken interdisciplinary courses in chemistry and biology experience increased success and retention in successive advanced-level courses such as organic chemistry compared to counterparts who experienced more traditional teaching methods.​
