Integrative Sciences B.S. Degree




The B.S. in Integrative Sciences at Harrisburg University of Science and Technology was designed to start with the basics of biology, chemistry, and physics, and then allow students the flexibility to concentrate in Biology, Chemistry, Biological Chemistry,  Environmental Science & Renewable Energy, and Forensics.

This major produces well-prepared alumni with knowledge in the physical sciences to enter graduate school or a career path. An environment favorable to interdisciplinary learning in science is provided, and through classroom and experiential learning opportunities, the student is allowed to develop his or her own interests in the areas where the different disciplines overlap.

Program concentrations include: Biology, Biological Chemistry, Chemistry, and Forensics.


This isn’t your high school science class. We take learning beyond beakers and test tubes – allowing you to discover real biological phenomena, while working side-by-side with top doctors, scientists and CEOs.

Biological Chemistry

Do you enjoy aspects of both Biology & Chemistry? Biological Chemistry combines the best of both areas of study and broadens your exposure to a variety of career opportunities.


Chemistry is the science that touches nearly every aspect of our existence. From developing new forms of energy to stopping the next killer superflu, chemistry can be your launch pad into a new and exciting career.

Environmental Science & Renewable Energy

The health of our natural environment and the prosperity of our nation will depend on finding ways to produce clean, renewable energy. It may come from the sun or it may come from bacteria but it won’t come at all without fresh ideas from young scientists. Are you up to the challenge?


Here you’ll find that real crime scenes take the place of traditional classrooms. The forensics program is the true science behind shows like CSI.
