Chemical Physics

The Departments of Chemistry and Physics offer an interdepartmental major in Chemical Physics, an interdisciplinary field of study at the intersection of chemistry and physics. The major incorporates the core elements of the Chemistry and Physics degrees that relate to the structure and properties of atoms, molecules, and materials. It offers a richer foundation in physics than the standard Chemistry major and significantly more experience in experimental and theoretical chemistry than the usual Physics major. Please see the Chemical Physics page of the college’s on-line course catalog and the Chemical Physics program homepage for details of course requirements and options for this interdepartmental major.
