The School of Integrated Science and Humanity, launched in the Spring of 2011, is a unique integration of academic departments, centers and institutes.
The School promotes awareness and discussion of social and ethical issues in the human health, behavioral and cognitive sciences, and provides leadership in creating partnerships that will expand local economic opportunities. SISH’s multidisciplinary approach extends to local, national and international communities.
In the areas addressing human health, the School is a catalyst for strengthening, promoting and contributing to innovative research and teaching, and offers academic programs at the bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral levels in Chemistry and Biochemistry, Mathematics and Statistics, Philosophy, Physics, and Psychology. SISH is also home to many of the university’s prominent centers and institutes focusing on health-related issues, including the Center for Children and Families, the International Forensic Research Institute, the Biomolecular Sciences Institute, the STEM Transformation Institute, and the Women’s and Gender Studies Center.
The School is housed in the contemporary and newly built Science Classroom Complex (AHC-4, 3rd floor), with its glass windows on one side revealing science labs on every floor, and honeycomb architecture on the other side meeting the latest standards in solar design and efficiency.
SISH provides a focus for planned growth in the College of Arts, Sciences & Education as a component of FIU’s Academic Health Center, in partnership with the Colleges of Medicine, Public Health, Nursing & Health Sciences, and Engineering & Computing.
