Okay, I'm a high school junior looking at colleges for my undergrad degree. I am passionate about mathematics and also interested in physics and chemistry. I originally assumed that engineering would be the right field for me, but I'm not so sure now. I've talked to engineers in the family, and the design end of engineering isn't interesting to me at all (nor am I particularly good at it). So, now I'm thinking that a degree in applied(?) mathematics or maybe chemistry or physics is the right idea. I'd like to go to grad school anyway. A little research on the subject led me to the http://www.scienceone.ubc.ca/home/" [Broken] program at the University of British Columbia. This sounds perfect to me: a small, accelerated program covering all of the major sciences at once for the first year, but still contained inside a large university with the ability to choose a normal major second year. Which brings me to my question: are there any other programs like this? Here are the characteristics that I find attractive: - small (for 1st year) classes covering a broad range of fields at a fast pace - working together with the same group of motivated students in all classes - the ability to go back to the regular program and specialize after 1st year Are there any similar programs at other universities in Canada and the northern United States?
