Chemistry and Physics

Web: Chemistry and Physics Program
College of Arts and Sciences 

Dr. Henry Snyder, Interim Program Director
Hall Memorial Building, Room N302B

This program contains two disciplines: chemistry and physics.

Chemistry: Chemistry is the study of the composition and reactions of substances. The study of chemistry can apply to a wide variety of fields, including forensic science, environmental studies, the development and testing of medicines, chemical engineering, agriculture and food processing, and research into new energy sources.

Physics:  A thorough knowledge of physics can form a basis for work in many areas of modern science and engineering, and can provide an excellent background for the development and application of advanced technologies in medicine, law, and business.

The Chemistry and Physics Program offers several majors in chemistry that provide flexibility to match any career goal. Choose from either a bachelor of art (B.A.) degree in chemistry, a bachelor of science (B.S.) degree in chemistry, or a bachelor of art degree in chemical technology. The Department also offers a minor in chemistry.

For graduate studies in chemistry or a related field, then a B.S. in chemistry is the right choice. If you want to pursue a career in chemistry, but don't plan to go to graduate school in chemistry or a related field, you should get a B.A. in chemistry.

A B.A. degree in chemical technology is offered to students interested in a career as a technical assistant in a commercial, federal, or industrial laboratory setting. Many chemical technology graduates have become educators teaching science to elementary, middle, or high school students.  This option prepares the student for graduate study in chemistry and for most entry-level positions as chemists in industry and government. 

For continuation in the major, the student must maintain a cumulative degree average of 2.0 or better in chemistry courses numbered 300 and above.
