Kara Beauchamp (chair), Brian Johns, Niloofar Kamran, Derin Sherman

Note:


Students planning for graduate work are also strongly encouraged to take CHE 323 - Physical Chemistry I (1)  and CHE 324 - Physical Chemistry II (1) .

Teaching Certification:


Students who are interested in pursuing K-12 certification to teach science should seek admission to the Teacher Education Program. See the Education  department section for application and certification information.

Capstone:


Capstone: Physics majors conduct individual experimental projects of their own design in small groups during the advanced lab course. During the advanced lab, students will write an individualized paper, with emphasis on their particular contribution to the project. The student will revise the paper until it is accepted. If it appears that the student is making insufficient progress towards the completion of the individual paper, then the student and Registrar will be notified that the student is in danger of not completing the major requirements. Following the advanced lab, students are then required to present their findings in a public presentation. If the presentation is judged unacceptable, then the student will have the opportunity to give another presentation privately to the department.
