SCNC CC1000 and SCNC CC1100 – Frontiers of Science is a one-semester course that integrates modern science into the Core Curriculum through lectures and seminar sections. On Mondays throughout the semester, each of Columbia’s leading scientists present a mini-series of lectures. During the rest of the week, senior faculty and Columbia post-doctoral science fellows (research scientists selected for their teaching abilities) lead seminar sections limited to twenty-two students to discuss the lecture and its associated readings, and to debate the implications of the most recent scientific discoveries.
Frontiers of Science satisfies one of the three required courses of the science requirement for Columbia College. For information about registering for Frontiers of Science, please refer to the College Bulletin or General Studies Bulletin and consult your advising dean.
