The Board of Trustees approved a new undergraduate major in Science and Religion in a meeting held earlier today. This unique interdisciplinary major combines a rigorous course of study in the sciences and humanities with bridge courses in science and religion. Creation of the major reflects one of the original goals of the Center and was accomplished by Senior Fellows Dr. Steve Donaldson, Dr. George Keller, Dr. Tom Woolley, and Dr. Wilton Bunch.
