or on the Q&A Forum
16:46@Nath:Could you please do a brief explanation of physical chemistry if you know about it?
49:32@goldenretriever1:does astrophysics require high level math?
50:59@Nath:What are some like, characteristic subjects that you are taking or took for your major?
51:44@Parent24:Is Neuroscience a premed route to med career?
52:23@Wayfarer:Mathematics is usually considered the base of all science, but which scientific discipline would you consider the closest to the humanities and social sciences? I.e. the one which gives the most cross-disciplinary insight (I’m interested in the structure of things, be it material or social)
54:58@Parent24:Did you take the IB? If yes, which 6 subjects?
55:email@example.com:Could you talk a little bit about aquatic biology?
58:00@Wayfarer:Because of intensive nature of science, are science majors better nurtured in a liberal or restrictive curriculum? I.e. is it better to go with a focused intensive approach or broad exploratory one? I’m afraid I’d lose in depth by going with a liberal curriculum.
61:06@elena:Do you have any recommendations for majors for someone interested in applied science?
62:27@goldenretriever1:does Yale have core curriculum requirement? thanks
63:45@Nath:Do you think that the school you go to limits your opportunities in the research fields? With the sciences.
66:22@goldenretriever1:is Yale strong in astrophysics?
69:21@goldenretriever1:Historically Yale is super strong in humanities. would you say now Yale is branching out to science?
71:13@crazyblob:what's a good major for biotech
72:20@Wayfarer:Is it easier to transition from a BA to a BS or the opposite?
74:11@crazyblob:Would a B.S look better for grad school?
74:50@JO:Neuroscience relates to autism research? Any this type of research at Yale?
75:43@Nath:After completing the gen ed requirements, can you take the classes that you want?
79:59@Wayfarer:From your own experience, how valuable is research experience early in the undergraduate level? Should one focus on studies and theory first, and let the hands-on experience come second?
