What You’ll Study
Our physics minor is taught with an emphasis on physics within chemistry and the natural sciences. You will be encouraged to think about how physics and chemistry can be applied in addressing the world’s human health and sustainability issues. With the help of the faculty, the chemistry crew, the friendly atmosphere of the Elvis lounge, and the company of the cool cat Mendeleev, you will thoroughly enjoy your exploration of the chemical and physical basis of our world.
Your capstone undergraduate research project will serve as the culmination of your exploration. You will propose and design a project and independently conduct the investigation under the guidance of one of our faculty members. You will immerse yourself in a project of your own choosing and you will present your results to the community. Opportunities to attend conferences are plentiful and our students have been quite successful obtaining graduate fellowships based on their research experiences.
