University of Michigan and Portland State have majors in complexity theory. A bunch of colleges have majors in the History of Science. You might also look into University of British Columbia. A professor called Lee Gass there wrote an essay on teaching creativity in science and posted it on the internet. Also look into colleges where you can design your own major. (Hampshire, Brown and I think Portland State among others.)

No problem. If any of the things I mentioned interest you you can also plug the subject plus the "colleges" or something into google and it should give you more info or more schools. There are lots of schools besides the ones I mentioned that have design your own major and history of science. And I think a couple more that have complexity theory as an undergraduate major. If it is in your price range I would seriously look into Hampshire college. You can design your own major and take classes at the four other colleges in the consortium that it is in. So if you have either a very broad or very specialized major it gives you a lot of options.
