Abstract. Few students majoring in art, drama, music, television, film/video, radio, journalism, dance, etc. take courses that cover subject matter at the cutting edge of science. At our institution, these students, the future artists and communicators of our society, receive an interdisciplinary, inquiry-based laboratory experience in the course “Frontiers of Science”.
