Chair: William Schreiber, Department of Chemistry and Physics

Physics faculty members offer a curriculum leading to a minor in physics, which may be combined with any major. The minor in physics can be combined with a major in chemistry and education to prepare for the Teacher of Physical Science Certification. A minor in physics also complements the interests of students majoring in mathematics, software engineering, and a variety of other fields. The physics faculty support various undergraduate programs by offering specific courses required in other majors and courses designed to meet the general education natural sciences requirements. They also provide research opportunities for interested students.
