Learn to address the challenges faced by society utilizing technical skills and knowledge applicable across multiple disciplines. Wherever students desire to go in the sciences, the Chemistry and Physics department is dedicated to helping students get there. The Department offers three programs in physics, including Biophysics and Engineering Physics, each offering a balanced presentation of theory and application. Each track has course offerings designed to allow students to best pursue their objectives. Our programs are designed to give students broad opportunities ranging from health-related careers to advanced studies in physics and engineering.

The variety of opportunities available for students in the chemistry and physics department are limitless. From learning with communities outside the classroom and undergraduate research directly with a faculty member to laboratory assistant jobs and service learning outreach programs with various middle and high school and youth organizations, opportunities abound for students seeking to gain experience and expertise.

This traditional major offers the most flexibility for students who wish to also earn a minor or second major in another subject.
