McMaster's Integrated Science program for high-achieving students has picked up a major international award.
The program launched in 2009 has been recognized with a prestigious Wharton-QS Stars Reimagine Education award. The awards, presented in Philadelphia last week, are considered the "Oscars" of innovation in higher education.
