The Department of Chemical & Physical Sciences is a multidisciplinary department, including the fields of astronomy, chemistry, geology, physics and science education. The Department offers majors leading to the B.S. in either Chemistry or General Science. The Chemistry Major prepares students for high school teaching, graduate school or employment in the field. The General Science Major is designed specifically for students who plan to teach at the elementary or middle school levels.
The Department is located on the third floor of Wilson Hall, where most departmental classes are held. Nine laboratories are also located on the third floor, and chemical instrumentation includes infrared, ultraviolet, flame emission and atomic absorption spectrophotometers, and gas and liquid chromatographs. The Department is also home to a small geology museum and a computer-controlled 8-inch Meade telescope.
