Abstract

In this paper, we describe a new interdisciplinary B.S. degree in Science Informatics at Montclair State University, a multipurpose public institution that includes a substantial General Education component. Beginning in the freshmen year, the Science Informatics curriculum contains 16 semester hours of interdisciplinary science informatics courses including a freshmen experience, internships, a research component, ethics, and a concentration currently in bioinformatics, cheminformatics, or computer science as well as core science and mathematics courses.
