DEGREE PROGRAMS FOR: CHEMICAL PHYSICS
Chemical Physics is an interdisciplinary field merging the disciplines of chemistry and physics. A number of hot research topics, including areas of materials science, surface science, and nanotechnology, require an in-depth knowledge of both of these fields. In addition, there is much work being done to better understand the physical processes that take place in chemical reactions and chemical bonding. Such understanding can lead to advances in any chemistry-related industry, including pharmaceuticals and plastics.
