Harvard Faculty Approve Curriculum Changes

Harvard University's arts and sciences faculty has approved a major overhaul of the school's undergraduate life sciences curriculum. It is the first such change in more than 20 years.

Beginning in September this year, undergrads will take courses programmed around topic areas tailored to their discipline. Currently, life sciences students take many of the same basic science courses.

For more on the changes, listen to a conversation with anthropology professor Daniel Lieberman who led the committee that designed the new program.

This program aired on April 19, 2006. The audio for this program is not available.
