At the undergraduate level, an awareness of the importance of interdisciplinary connections has increased significantly in the last few years and a number of institutions have attempted to combine the traditional chemistry course or even whole programs with other subjects such as, but not limited to, biology, physics and mathematics. Integration of chemistry and another subject(s) can happen in either the laboratory environment, the lecture or both with a particular challenge lying in being able to mesh the separate courses seamlessly. The integrated courses generally aim to increase the interdisciplinary awareness of participating students, strengthening connections between the disciplines and giving a bigger picture awareness. Of course, this integration poses particular challenges such as not sacrificing the materials that would be obtained from taking the courses separately but the potential rewards are significant and this symposium is designed to discuss these.
