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 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. The Chemical Physics major is co-administered by both Chemistry and Physics Departments.
In order to be considered for entry into any majors (B.A. and B.S.) in Biochemistry, Chemical Physics, and Chemistry, first-year students must have a composite score of 21 on the ACT, transfer students must have earned a 2.75 cumulative GPA or better, and students currently attending Lewis University must have an overall GPA of 2.75 or better. Facility in mathematics and laboratory sciences is essential .
